Product Description

Angoves Long Row Riesling

REGION:South Australia,

Vintage Year: Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

COLOUR Bright pale-medium straw colour with some green hues.

AROMA This delicious Riesling has a flamboyant lifted floral nose displaying floral citrus and tropical notes.

FLAVOUR These characters carry through on the palate, underpinned with some lime and citrus, and a hint of guava with a good weight and a clean and soft finish of surprising length.

VINEYARD
Sourced from our Nanya Vineyard in the Riverland from our own “heritage” clone of Riesling originally planted by Tom Angove in the early 70’s. This particular clone of Riesling produces an extremely varietally expressive wine in our region. Cuttings have since been grafted to new rootstocks to re-establish this heritage on modern trellising with drip irrigation – the legend continues. The Vintage was generally good, rains in spring lead to minimal requirement for irrigation, good crops being set and abundant canopies which would be needed to ripen the fruit to perfection. This year has been great for aromatic varietal expression, and this Riesling is no exception. A warm early January period ensured fantastic flavour development and a harvest of exceptional grapes.

WINEMAKING
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern membrane tank presses. After cold settling the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling, fi ltration and bottling at the Angove winery.

Reviews and awards
taste.com.au - Tony Love - 02.12.14 - 4/5
“An extraordinary little riesling grown in a region many would not imagine could do such a fine job. It’s all about a ‘heritage’ Angove clone of the variety planted 40 years ago and replanted to modern growing techniques. The result: true varietal expression, limes to the aromatic fore, balanced crispness, granny smith like acidity and flavours, and even a little cinnamon spice lift.
Astonishing.”

Daily Telegraph - Nick Ryan - 23.08.14
“It’s a softly ripe style, full of blood orange and mandarin characters, a supple mid-palate and crisp finish. Real bang for your buck.”


Sunday Examiner - 13.07.14
“My wife and I opened this alongside several other rieslings - including some at double the price - and it stacked up well. It’s a crisp and fresh wine made in a drink-now style with citrus,
apple and tropical fruit notes, some cheeky refreshing acid and just a hint of residual sugar, although it finishes fairly dry.”


Newcastle Herald - John Lewis - 28.06.14 - 428.06.14 - 4 Stars
“It is olive green-tinted straw straw in the glass and has jasmine scents. Fresh lemon flavour registers on the front of the palate and lime zest, flint and restrained honey characters combine on the middle palate. Flinty acid features at the finish.”
