The fresh faced new wine at Tallis


Like many wine lovers our hearts have been stolen by Riesling, and last Thursday we hand-picked our first serious harvest. We picked at a low baume which is an indication of the grape's sugar level, so the finished wine will be quite low in alcohol with citrusy fruit characters, and naturally acidity. Being an aromatic grape variety, we wanted to preserve the delicate aromas and flavours typical of Riesling so the clarified juice is being fermented at a very low temperatures over an extended period. We are looking to make a crisp, fresh, zesty style with lemon, lime and floral characters which will be superb with seafood, salads and spicy food or simply a wonderfully refreshing drink on its own.
