Spioenkop Riesling, Elgin
This product is currently sold out.
Uniquely distinct Elgin Riesling from the impassioned Koen Roose.
Hand-picked Weisser Riesling grown on west facing slopes of Table Mountain Sandstone - one of the coldest, blowiest places in South Africa. Grapes in small 18kg boxes, one night in the cool store (3°C) and then destemmed and slightly crushed. Just 4 hours of skin-contact in a red fermenter and then immediately pressed in our stainless steel basket press. After 1 day of settlement, the juice fermented at 15°C during the whole month of March. Natural fermentation.
A celebratory nose of green limes with a whiff of salinity. A rapier sharp palate of limes and terrific bony skeletal texture. It’s like sucking any other Elgin Riesling through marble. A bony, brittle delight with endless citrussy length.
Great match with shellfish, langoustines, grilled fish, salads, fish terrines, salads with olives, duck and pork meat.
