GEISENHEIM 318 2020
Citrus dominates the profile, sweet grapefruit is upfront followed by caramelized peaches, lemon and orange peel. Complexity in the profile comes in with hints of river stone, lemon grass and fresh cut hay. The citrus aromas carry to the profile with mid palate complexity and a zesty finish.
Great with spice infused dishes like pad Thai, or a spicy pho. Also pairs well also with roasted root vegetables, pork schnitzel, grilled shrimp or antipasti.
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. 318 is a crossing of Riesling and Chancellor. 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.
An new experimental yeast was used on this wine, It showcases very much how the Geisenheim clones can resembles Riesling. There are more notes of peaches but the citrus really dominates. A really fun zesty wine also a great match for foods with a bit of spice or fried foods will also match well.
