Vibrant pear with white florals and lemon blossom
Palate
Natural bright acidity creates a tight framework for this wine, showcasing rich pear with delicate lemon blossom and ginger spice. Complex, textural and with a compelling sense of minerality so expressive of its origin.

Winemaking Notes
Langi Riesling is selectively hand harvested from our Langi Old Block Riesling vines planted in 1975 at Mount Langi Ghiran. The site’s cool climate, together with granite sands and minimal irrigation, delivers grapes with great purity and stunning natural acidity. A small section of 15 panels across 15 rows at the southern crest of the block was selectively hand-harvested in order to capture their flavour intensity and razor-fine acidity. As a result, we are able to create wines with great energy and depth and with superb cellaring potential. A cool clean ferment with neutral yeast allows the varietal character and vineyard expression to shine. The Langi Geisenheim clone consistently produces wines with lifted floral and spice aromas complementing the citrus and mineral acidity.

The 2013 Langi Riesling offers a lovely lemongrass, lime leaves and orange blossoms nose. Beautifully textured, light-bodied, crisp and lively, it intermingles mineral notes with citrus characters in the long finish. It is still very youthful, but approachable now.
