SKU: FRAALWERIE21
Alter Weg' translates to the old way, this Organic Riesling is harvested from the Isolation Ridge Vineyard in Frankland River and is wild yeast fermented in 1000L and 500L barrels. A unique expression of Australian Riesling that is about palate weight and texture balanced with the generosity of fruit and natural acidity of the grape and the region. This wine isn't just lemons and limes, it is more about complex aromas and flavours with savoury spice. Made in very small quantities it has become very sought after over the years and sells out very quickly.

Wine Style

White - crisp, thirst quenching, light-bodied

Palate

Mineral yet juicy palate, initially a very slight reduction aroma of gun smoke/ironstone gives way to the fruitfulness and volume of this wine as it opens up. Saline and crystalline notes give freshness and brightness which is followed by a soft textural line that gives the wine a fullness and completeness. The tension of this wine masterfully balances the fruitful yet savoury palate with a deliciousness and mouth-watering finish from the fine well-rounded acidity.

Food Pairing

Perfect with Thai and Vietnamese food, grilled crustaceans but also quite good with roasted pork or chicken.
