Chalkers Crossing Hilltops Riesling 2016
Celine Rousseau made this riesling from grapes grown on Chalkers Crossing’s Rockleigh vineyard near Young in the Hilltops regions. A few years’ bottle age has filled out the palate, accentuating the strong citrus-like flavours of the variety. Fresh acidity keeps the palate lively and contributes to the clean, dry finish. The bottle-age character provides an interesting variation on riesling’s flavour and aroma.
