The first release of Riesling under The Sounds brand since 2008 is from Willie Crosse's fantastic Riesling block. It's made in a "classic" style where we have doggedly persevered with making low alcoholhigh sugar wines in the face of adversity. This wine proves why. Crabapple, beeswax, honeysuckle, rose petal, orange blossom, and lime zest aromatics, with a lovely line of acidity and a slatey minerality, giving a clean, ethereal finish.

Nose

Crabapple, beeswax, honeysuckle, rose-petal, orange blossom, and lime zest. Beautifully aromatic.

Palate

Classic-styled with lots of residual sugar yet shows a wonderful purity and delicacy. A lovely line of acidity and a slatey minerality give a clean, ethereal finish. Harmonious.

Background

A high yielding vintage saw idyllic conditions through April and under Willie's watchful eye and meticulous care we harvested wonderful fruit as usual, picked early to retain the acid level required to balance this kind of style. As a result the pH is very low and will pack punch and intensity for many years to come. With a lovely lightness of aroma and flavour the wine is delightfully delicate yet delivers gorgeous flavour and intensity.
