With pretty lime blossom, lemon tart and honeysuckle scents accented by a suggestion of talc, the light-bodied and dry 2013 The Florita Riesling has a bracing line of zesty acidity running through a great intensity of fruit and a long finish. Drink it now to 2025+.

“This micro batch super premium Riesling is the fruit of years of patience. We selected individual rows where the terra rossa and loam barely cover the deep limestone below. To guarantee the freshness of these precious grapes, we carefully picked batches to precisely fill our membrane press in the chill of night, and destemmed the bunches without crushing them. Only the finest 40% of the juice was used in this pristine, intense, beautifully citric Riesling.”
The 2013 ‘The Florita’ is a pale straw yellow colour with green tints. An elegant and balanced wine with intense floral aromas and classic citrus overtones. The palate is well structured with soft natural acidity and a fresh, juicy finish. A magnificent benchmark dry Riesling to be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring for the next ten years.
