Therianthropy Wines - Claire de Lune Riesling 2018
Riesling is a winemakers grape, and I simply adore it. The expression I love most is Alsatian style - ripe, dry and very aromatic. I set out with that intention in 2018 but not was it a fermentation that kept me awake at night with worry. It was low and very slow, but fermented to dryness in the end with the ripeness and complexity I had wished for.
It is dry and fresh with notes of peach, lemon, orange blossom, dried apricot, honey and a touch of petrol. Let it breathe a bit and you will find some ripe guava and pineapple emerging.
