Klein Constantia Riesling 2016


Product Notes

Vintage 2016
The 2016 harvest was early at Klein Constantia, yielding grapes with very ripe flavours, great acidity and pH balance - ideal for making Riesling. This vintage marks our fourth crop from this block of Riesling and we are beginning to understand the true potential of its terroir.

Description: Bright green gold in appearance. The nose bursts with peach and floral aromas and a fine minerality. Full bodied, the palate is fresh and aromatic with a firm acid backbone. Citrus flavours persist well into the finish and are supported by a broad, elegant mouthfeel.

Grape variety: 100 % Riesling

Wine record: The Riesling is made in a natural and minimalistic style. The grapes had long extended skin contact before pressing and were fermented naturally. The
wine underwent cold fermentation and was left on the lees for 6 months. No added enzymes were used in the making of this wine.

Wine analysis:
Alcohol 13.28%
Residual sugar 6.3 g/l
pH 3.23
Total acid 6.1 g/l

Maturation Drink now, but will age beautifully for up to 10 years

Region Constantia, Western Cape
