Sue-Ann’s Mentor and Grandmother, Lula Staff, would say “I love your Riesling”. A light-hearted, semi-dry wine with vibrant acidity … just like her. Enjoy with appetizers, salads, light meals or on its own … like she did.

A warmer season provided for flavours and nuances slightly more developed despite the early harvest date. Aromatics reminiscent of mango, guava, ripe peach juice with wet stone notes dominate the palate. Zippy acidity and minerality fill the palate with sun-kissed oranges, tangerines, ripe Meyer lemon meringue pie. Fresh, semi-dry and balanced. The finish is round with minerality shinning through. Fabulous when paired with appetizers, chicken, poultry, seafood, fish, mild cheese, or on its own. Sensational with Thai cuisine.
