Rizza is made from 100% estate grown Riesling. It is a refreshing, semi-sweet style of wine that is low in alcohol and perfect to enjoy with spicy foods or equally as a drink by itself. It’s interesting and fun and appeals even to those who don’t do sweet.
Hand picked fruit then whole bunch pressed, cold settled then fermented with natural yeast. Cloudy juice fermented warm to promote texture and shape. Lightly filtered.
Tropical with bright guava, mango, pineapple and lychee. The nose also some great twists of roses and rose water.
The tropical theme continues onto the palate. It’s sweet but light due to the low alcohol. Very drinkable.
Enjoy this wine with spicy foods, fresh fruit and cheese, dessert or serve it really cold as a refreshing aperitif on a hot day.
