Koonunga Hill Autumn Riesling aims
to deliver the quality, value and consistency for which
the Koonunga Hill range is renowned.
An expressive, highly aromatic Riesling. Floral and citrus notes combine with crisp
mouth-watering acidity to make this a versatile wine
suitable both as an aperitif and as a partner for richer
Now-2019. Drinking well now, but will improve with time.
Highly aromatic, lifted. Varietally pure.
Fragrant citrus fruits (lime pastille/mandarin) and elderflower with sherbet nuances.
Background aromas of curry spice, turmeric and nutmeg.
A curry spice continuum across the zesty, citrus-driven palate – somewhat akin to mandarin sherbet.
A lively taut acidity - offering a wonderfully balanced structure.
Indeed, a notable aromatic, flavour & structural example of classic Australian Riesling.
Offers immediate drinking enjoyment … which no doubt will extend into the future!
Origin: Eden Valley, South Australia.
Maturation: Bottled soon after completion of fermentation, to preserve freshness and minerality.
Fermentation: Six months in stainless steel.
The start of the growing season was approximately one week late with budburst and shoot growth relatively even across the region. Flowering started in October and lasted about one week. Spring and summer were very dry with rainfall well below average, which stretched depleted water resources.
The mild summer with a lack of heat waves ensured the fruit was able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours without the threat of stressful heat events.
