2009 Woodstock Riesling
Whilst most growers in McLaren Vale have pulled out Riesling vines in favour of more profitable varieties, we are proud of our Woodstock Riesling. The Riesling vines were planted in 1973 on the hilltop of Woodstock Estate, with cool breezes, white sandy soils and a north facing slope.
To ensure we preserve the delicate flavours of the Riesling variety, the grapes are picked early while there is still good natural acidity and deliberately harvested in the cool of the night to retain freshness. Only free-run juice is used to ensure we capture the purity of the Riesling grape.
Crisp acidity, zesty fresh aromatics and more mid-palate flavour is the style we strive to make at Woodstock. The 2009 Riesling is a delicate wine displaying citrus notes, grapefruit pith and a granny smith acidity on the palate. Its lean natural acid structure will see it age gracefully for many years to come.
Thinly sliced salmon carpaccio drizzled with lemon juice, fresh extra virgin olive oil and salted Ligurian capers or Silago Punctata (King George Whiting) any way you like it.
