SYP Monsters Attack Riesling 2015
Some Young Punks' texture-rich, zingy Clare Riesling is sourced from 3 sites in the Valley (from north to south): Gully View and Milburn in Watervale and Mocandunda (next to Hanlin Hill), each lying around 440 metres above sea level with a vine age of 14-26 years. The winemaking takes in a mixture of whole bunch pressing (80%) and destemming and crushing prior to pressing, before fermentation in a mixture of stainless and neutral oak. A quarter of the wine is fermented with indigenous yeast. The finished wine is a refreshing Kabinett style with only 10.8% alcohol, a gentle 25g of residual and mouth-watering, crunchy acidity. Peach flesh with strong lime and lemon zest on the nose; the palate is saturated with clear, textured fruit - think the mouthwatering flesh of a ripe, cold Feijoa pear. A tip-top Monsters. Dial D for delicious.
