Our MadFish Riesling grows in the Great Southern wine region of Western Australia. This climate is called “continental” and is characterized by long cold winters, warm summers and not a lot of rainfall. Being away from the coast, the difference between the day time and night time temperature is greater than in a region closer to the coast. Riesling seems to like these conditions. Winemakers say Riesling is tough to make because there is nowhere to hide. It’s just you and the grapes, no oak, no malo, no tricks... When we make Riesling we strive to preserve and showcase clean, bright citrus and apple, fruit flavours. Sometimes the acidity can be a little high so leaving a bit of sugar at the end of the fermentation gives a nice drinking balance – not too sweet and not too sour - just right

Lovely lemon in colour with, lime zest, citrus blossom and green skin pear aromas. The flavours are citrus, apples and pears with a soft stone/ mineral acidity that keeps the flavours lasting and fresh.

It’s always important to start the growing season will plenty of moisture in the soil. The winter and spring of 2016 gave plenty of that. When it was time for summer holidays, BBQ’s and a glass of Riesling, you want nice warm weather - well so do the vines. In WA the summer of 2017 was mild to lame for all, vines included.The knock on effect of the cool conditions was a really late start to the grape harvest due to this lack of warmth and sunshine. The upside of cool conditions for Riesling is vibrant flavours and truly varietal notes.

Enjoy now and over the next year. Great with BBQ’d seafood on a warm summer evening. If it’s too cool to sit outside, then try it with Citrus Cured Trout, Tuna Poke or Fish Tacos
