Riesling 2003

The 2003 mesh is in classic fashion, an outstanding successor to the gorgeous 2002 vintage. Another dry winter led to vines setting conservative crops and a dry and warm January forecast an early vintage. However February brought some long awaited rain, and the following cool dry weather was perfect for the ripening of flavours and sugars in the grapes.

The result was very healthy vines that produced grapes with high natural acid, concentrated flavour, and excellent quality. Gentle processing of the selectively hand picked grapes and the use of only the clearest free-run juice ensured that the delicate, fresh flavours of the grapes were expressed.

Green and vibrant in appearance, the aroma is fresh lemon and lime juice with a hint of lemon peel. The palate is powerful, lively and generous, with intense citrus fruit flavours and a hint of spice. The final result is that 2003 will be remembered as one of the great white vintages in Eden Valley with the wine finishing clean and dry with refreshing natural acidity.

As is the case with all great Eden Valley Rieslings, mesh will age gracefully and reliably into a mature wine under the Stelvin screw-cap closure.
