Roaring Meg Riesling 2021
Roaring Meg Riesling 2021 is a classic cool climate Riesling. Fragrant aromas of citrus blossom alongside lemons and lime. A zesty, dynamic and exciting palate full of kaffir lime and bursting citrus fruit flavours. Flowing into a juicy finish balancing the residual sugar making it very drinkable. Off dry in style
Roaring Meg Central Otago Riesling is optimal drinking from now to 8 years of vintage.
The 2021 growing season was a return to the enviable, lower stress conditions that Central Otago is famous for. We started with a warm spring, which gave the vines a good start. January was cooler and wetter, which replenished the soils and slowed growth, giving small, intensely flavoured grapes. By the time the beginning of harvest rolled around, we were just ahead of our long term average in terms of rate of ripening, and with fruit in fantastic condition. Yields were thankfully back to average in most areas, with only Bannockburn cropping slightly lower. This has given wines with excellent flavour and structure.
