Growing Conditions

From the 9 year-old vines of the certified organic and biodynamic Quarry Road Estate vineyard. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. Planted on mixed limestone and clay soils, this 11 acre block is farmed organically and biodynamically and produces vibrant Rieslings with distinct minerality.

Winemaking

Tawse has been producing single-vineyard Riesling from the Quarry estate vineyard since 2009. A very aromatic wine with notes of mandarin oranges, flinty minerality and a hint of honeysuckle present on the nose. The citrus notes of mandarin orange and lime follow through to the palate and are accompanied by wet stone. The mouthfeel is round and sweet and displays less acidity than in previous vintages.

Food Pairing

The fine balance between sweetness and acidity makes this Riesling extremely food-friendly. This Riesling will pair beautifully with foods with citrus such as roast chicken served with a quinoa salad with lemon dressing. The sweetness on the palate will make it a great match for coconut shrimp or Baha fish tacos. Of course it’s absolutely delightful all on its own.
