'Mary McTaggart' Riesling 2020
A silhouette of the young lady herself, this wine is named in honour of the Collett family matriarch, Mary McTaggart. A lover of all things aromatic, Mary started Woodstock Estate’s flourishing herb garden. The delicately perfumed Riesling grape made her favourite wine, and this scented example comes solely from a small north-facing vineyard on the sandy slopes of the highest part of the estate. Soothed by sea and gully breezes over summer, the fruit is picked in the cool of the night, capturing the fragrant varietal aromas at their peak.
This Riesling has classic lime juice and citrus floral aromas, combined with a balanced and elegant palate. Lean yet juicy and vibrant, the palate is concentrated, tart in youth and refreshingly dry. A great acid line and backbone ensures that this wine will evolve and blossom with age if cellared cool. (Below 20°C)
Enjoy with Sushi and Sashimi or battered King George Whiting, just as Mary would have enjoyed it.
