Rizza: It’s time for a “Rizza” – a “Riesling” and turn of phrase “Palate cleanser”.
Made from 100% estate grown Riesling, it is a refreshing, semi-sweet style of wine with good tangy acidity and a clean finish. It is low in alcohol and perfect to enjoy with spicy foods or equally as a drink by itself. It is an interesting and enjoyable wine that appeals even those who don’t do sweet styles.
Hand-picked fruit. Cold pressed, left to settle. Warmed natural yeast added, producing cloudy fermented juice to promote texture and shape. A close eye was kept on fermentation in order to get the sugar levels just right.
After fermentation, it was left to cool for the next few months. Lightly filtered.
Tropical fruits of young mango, citrus and lychee with hints of rosewater and sweet spice.
Sweet, spicy and light with tropical fruit flavours and a refreshing finish.
Enjoy this wine with spicy foods, Asian dishes, summer fruits or with dessert. Serve chilled as a refreshing aperitif on a hot day or as a palate refresher.
