Klein Constantia Estate Riesling 2016

Klein Constantia Estate Riesling 2016

Bright green gold in appearance. The nose bursts with peach and floral aromas and a fine minerality. Full bodied, the palate is fresh and aromatic with a firm acid backbone. Citrus flavours persist well into the finish and are supported by a broad, elegant mouthfeel.

ageing : Drink now, but will age beautifully for up to 10 years in bottle.

in the vineyard : Yielding grapes with very ripe flavours, great acidity and pH balance - ideal for making Riesling. This vintage marks our fourth crop from this block of Riesling and we are beginning to understand the true potential of its terroir.

about the harvest: The 2016 harvest was early at Klein Constantia.

in the cellar : The Riesling is made in a natural and minimalistic style. The grapes had long extended skin contact before pressing and were fermented naturally. The wine underwent cold fermentation and was left on the lees for 6 months. No added enzymes were used in the making of this wine.
