SEIFRIED ESTATE SWEET AGNES RIESLING 2018 11.5% 37.5CL VV
Pure and powerful, the nose has mandarin peel and floral notes, while the palate is luscious with bright fruit balanced by natural acidity. Succulent fruit sweetness wraps around the crisp acid backbone leaving a long, exceptionally generous finish - the perfect way to finish a meal! Redwood Valley Vineyard is a 30ha north facing slope which has a solid Moutere clay soil structure and this soil has high water holding capacity. This site was first planted in 1979 and now has Seifried’s most established vines, producing fruit with fantastic depth, complex flavours and textural components. Due to the north facing aspect of this vineyard and the very limited irrigation, ripening times are typically earlier than other Seifried vineyards and the wines show characteristic texture and palate structure. Winemakers Note Using 100% Riesling fruit, the grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice. The grapes were picked, pressed and fermented in batches as grapes were selected during several passes through the vineyard. e fermentation was initiated immediately and continued for about three weeks. During this time, the ferment parcels were monitored and tasted regularly. The young wine was then blended and stabilised before bottling in July 2018. The residual sugar in the wine is 153g/L. Tasting Note The 2018 Seifried Winemakers Collection ‘Sweet Agnes’ Riesling is concentrated and inviting on the nose. Crystallised citrus peel, succulent apricots and honey notes come through on the nose. The palate has a flavoursome burst of fruit concentration with a neat line of citrusy acidity balancing the luscious palate and leaving a satisfying lingering finish.
