The Riesling grapes were allowed to ripen fully and were only picked when the flavors of rich flowery limes were achieved, and when
the supporting mineral acid balance was at its optimum. The Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling preserves the delicate lemon-lime citrus fruit and the very soft, but mineral-like
flavors which typify the varietal fruit characteristics of a classic Cool Climate Riesling. The ripening of the grapes was monitored with regular berry tasting by winemakers in the vineyard, to ensure the grapes were harvested at maximum flavor concentration.
Color: Pale straw with green hues
Bouquet: Apple and citrus blossom notes, enhanced with an attractive lemon fragrance and a subtle toasty bottle development nuance.
Palate: Very delicate lime and lemon fruit flavors overlain with soft toasty lemon butter complexity, and balanced by a long chalky natural acidity which provides great length and structure to
the finish of the wine.
