The Fledge Riesling 2018



Purposefully crafted to age for at least a  decade or three, crafted from a premier near  perfect single site of Elgin Riesling rooted in  decomposed Table Mountain sandstone over  white clay. Harvested in early March, allowed skin-contact, cold fermented with “Champagne” yeasts & bottled after fermentation with a light  filtration to preserve the electric acidity, zesty citrus fruit flavours, floral aromatics and spice. Destined for years of cellaring to fully revel in its  complexities. Best served chilled, enjoy with fresh  crustaceans ‘n other denizens of the deep, rustic  poultry dishes, fine fromage or charcuterie. Only  1270 bottles of this fine cool climate wine were  crafted. Prost!
