Dry White Wine 2012

Vitkin Riesling

Grape Varieties:
100% Johanesberg Riesling harvested from Judean Hills’ slopes.

The Vineyards:
Planted on chalky soil of Judean Hills’ slopes, produced a very limited yield.

Vinification:
The fruit was hand picked at the beginning of September and brought to the winery during the cool hours of the day. The juice was pressed gently in a new membrane press. After settling at a low temperature, the very clearest juice was fermented in low temperature for 4 weeks Thereafter, the wine was kept aging on its fine lees, a process which resulted in enriching the complexity and strengthening its tastes. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation in order to preserve its fresh character.

Tasting Notes:
This dry white wine is well focused, aromatic wine whose complexity and depth is supported by a crispy acidity. Its first year it has a fragrance of fresh lime-green citrus fruit, white flowers and minerals. Under proper storage conditions additional aromas typical of Riesling variety can develop petroleum, honeysuckle and honey.

Serving:
Vitkin Johannesberg Riesling 2006 is especially suited to accompany sea food, roasted poultry and Peking duck.
It should be decanted a short time before serving.
Recommended serving temperature - 8° - 12° C.

Storage:
This is a wine which has an unusual aging capacity compared to white wines of this region. Under proper storage conditions it will continue to develop and gain complexity for 3 - 5 years after harvest year.
