The Kerrigan + Berry Riesling is made from the historic Langton Vineyard, Mount Baker in Western Australia’s Great Southern.
COLOUR: Pale straw colour with lively, steely green tinges.
NOSE: A perfumed blend of limes, lemons and more tropical passionfruit.
PALATE: The initial impression on the palate is that of seamless structure, fine vibrant acids and lingering citrus flavours. There is a complex array of flavours in the mouth, dominated by lemons, limes and grapefruit. These are supported by hints of spice and mineral on the mid-palate and green apple on the impressively long finish.
CELLARING: The refreshing lemons and limes make this wine very appealing in its first year or so. However it may take up to ten years before this fine steely structure transforms into the toasty, rich, complex wine that is an aged Riesling.
Growing Region: Mount Barker, Great Southern, Western Australia.
Variety: Riesling 100%
