Tasting Notes

Skywalk is named after the lookout which is affixed to the side of Castle Rock itself, providing great views of the surrounding area. A full and flavoursome style Riesling with a rich and balanced palate.

A blend of all our Riesling blocks. Fruit was machine harvested, with only the medium pressings juice being used in the wine. Juice underwent a cool ferment in stainless steel tank with inoculated yeast. Short maturation before bottling to retain freshness.

Pale lemon colour. Characteristic musk sticks and florals combo on the nose, with subtle ground coriander spice. An approachable and plush palate, full of musk and Meyer lemon. The wine exhibits lovely richness in check with the delicate acid structure. Subtle citrus pith providing texture. A wine providing immediate enjoyment, finishing fresh and playful.

Food Accompaniment: Enjoy now with a wide range of dishes from seafood to hot and spicy meals.

Cellaring Potential: Enjoy now or alternatively allow it to gain complexity and interest as it ages for up to 10 years.
