2017 Juniper Estate Cane Cut Riesling 375ml Margaret River – The combination of my aim to produce a dessert style wine with a point of difference and the fact that Margaret River generally does not experience the right weather conditions to make good botrytis style wines led to the cane-cut technique. At about the same maturity I would pick for a dry style of Riesling most of the fruit bearing canes are cut so approx 85% of the crop then dehydrates for 3 weeks on the vine until it’s suitably dried but not too raisined.
Pale straw in colour, the nose has a floral citrus blossom lift with fruit characters of lemon, lime, green apple, pear and cumquat, complemented by characters of orange/lime marmalade, honey, almond and nougat. The palate is succulent and mouth watering featuring flavours of glazed pear and citrus, creamed honey, nougat and nuances of marmalade-like bitterness finishing with a refreshing crisp clean mouth feel.
