Cool fermented under 14 degrees in stainless steel tanks over several weeks. Gentle pressing and 100% free run juice. A small proportion was barrel fermented in small oak casks to add extra texture and mouthfeel.
Subtle lime leaf, lemongrass and white blossoms combine with lemon sherbet to give Massena’s 2019 Stonegarden Riesling a bright and complex aroma. Flavours of Meyer lemon are shared with grapefruit and lemon pith astringency, plus a textural element not always associated with Australian Riesling. The natural acidity gives verve and energy, whilst the slate stone minerality leaves you salivating for more.
