Pressing Matters R9 Riesling 2016
Our most popular Riesling style and perhaps the most conventional; this is what is usually expected with a dry Riesling. The residual sugar, although only 9 grams, is enough to broaden the wine on the palate and the acidic lemon and lime found in the R0 give way to the sweeter versions of the fruit. There are usually hints of peach and grapefruit as well. The lovely floral nose remains and the extra residual sugar gives the wine a balance that softens the acid found in the R0.
The R9 matches well with seafood and meats such as turkey or chicken.
Located only 30 mins from Hobart in the Coal River Valley Pressing Matters Vineyard has been producing premium Tasmanian wine since 2006. We focus on two varieties, Pinot Noir and Riesling, which are extremely well suited to the cool climate of Tasmania’s Coal River Valley. We have a 7 Ha vineyard; half is planted with Pinot Noir – the remainder with Riesling.
Directly south of the city of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula wine region, the cool-climate island of Tasmania has earned an honorable reputation as the country’s finest producer of Sparkling Wine. Naturally the region also excels in top quality still wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, all distinguished because of a high natural acidity. Most of the Tasmania vineyards cluster around the eastern side of the island from north to south.
