A citrus dominated profile with aromas of grapefruit and lemon rind. Green notes of fennel and lemongrass add a layer of complexity with subtle hints of daffodil and mineral. The zesty fruit carries to the palate with a crisp finish.
Richer dishes like fried calamari, spicy fried chicken, pasta with beurre blanc sauce, roasted poultry with scalloped potatoes or creamy pumpkin soup.
Geisenheim (Guy-Zen-Hi-M) originates from Germany – specifically from The Geisenheim Institute. We grow two clones on the property, Geisenheim 322 and Geisenheim 318. 322 is a crossing of Seibel 7053 and Riesling. Typically the Geisenheim variety has an aromatic profile of mineral, grapefruit, peach and hints of herbs. A light and lively variety that produces dry to sweet table wines. Love working with this aromatic variety! Often 322 has more Riesling characteristics – zesty, citrus and mineral.
This wine really impressed me, from fermentation on I was super impressed with the profile this wine had. It’s time in the cellar the profile evolved lots of grapefruit notes and sweet lemon rind but then it showed hints of a grassy lemon grass – just really unique and great colour! A great complex wine but not too heavy also nice and dry at 5g/L residual
