R/16 - Riesling
WE THINK RIESLING SHOULD FEEL LIKE THAT FIRST SWIM OF THE SUMMER. IT JOLTS YOU AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY IS LINGERING AND REFRESHING.
Here at Vinteloper we're having a debate about nature vs nurture. In winemaking which is best? Made from exactly the same grapes as ODEON Riesling, the artistic framework here is nuture; to use all the tools available to tweak and tinker in the chase for perfection. From 2015 is a wine that fills us with pride, as those small adjustments yield tangible improvements from previous releases. It's that last 2% that is the hardest to achieve.
Layer upon layer of mineral, crunch, lime & florals, highlighted by the searing natural acidity reinforces the potential longevity of Riesling.
LET IT TAKE YOU TO A PLACE WITH FRESH SEAFOOD, BLUE SKIES AND FRIENDS LAUGHING.
