Carrick Josephine Riesling

Bannockburn

The Josephine Riesling had its origins in our private (pirate) bottlings of 2004 and 2005 where we found that an early bottling of Riesling with higher residual sugar was both balanced and delicious. It's now very much part of our established range.

Vintage

Residual Sugar: 55 g/L
Alcohol: 9.0%
Harvest Dates: 20th April 2017
Vineyard and Winery Certified Organic

All Carrick Rieslings are hand harvested, and picked early to preserve the powerful floral aromatics and bright citrus acidity which are characteristic of Central Otago.
The grapes for this wine come solely from our BioGro certified organic, Lot 8 block. The wine has been whole bunch pressed and fermented by wild yeasts.

A lively bright floral nose with peach and fennel aromas.
There is an immediate intensity to this wine that is powerful, yet at the same time clean and balanced. Stone fruit characters are slowly reveled as this textural wine unfolds on the palate. The overall mineral nature, a hallmark of Carrick’s flavor profile, is fully celebrated with the Carrick Josephine Riesling.


The low alcohol content makes this a perfect lunch time wine or an evening aperitif accompanied with poached fruit and cured meats.


This wine will age far into the future.
