Hentley Farm Riesling

Be the first to review this product

This wine displays outstanding aromatic lift and fruit Intensity. The aromatic profile is
dominated by traditional citrus influence of lemon and lime combined with green apple,
jasmine, musk and a tropical lift of passionfruit and honeydew. The palate emulates the nose
and shows even more citrus with grapefruit bursting from the mid-palate. The wine has a
highly textured mouthfeel, fresh acidity and great length. Drink now as a young aromatic
white or cellar for 10+ years.

A dry winter and early spring was relieved by 60mm of rain in the first week of November. Consistently warm conditions through late spring and early summer provided ideal ripening conditions with no disease pressure, also bringing expected harvest dates forward. Persistent heat through December and most of January were also followed by a 60mm rain event in the last week of January followed by a long spell of mild temperatures providing the vines with some much needed respite, slowing sugar ripening down and thus providing increased flavour development. Harvest dates mostly returned to normality and the balance of seed and flavour ripeness was the best I have seen since 2010. Andrew Quin
