Red Rooster 2016 Riesling

Clear and bright with a pretty aroma of tangerine, pink grapefruit, mineral and floral. This just off-dry, light-bodied Riesling has mouthwatering acidity, and pink grapefruit, apple and white peach flavours that awaken the palate (better to be awakened by Riesling than by a Rooster). A bowl full of refreshing citrus fruit flavours and site specific minerality linger on the finish. Enjoy while young and fresh. Pair with citrus glazed salmon; lemon and spring pea risotto; sushi; fish and chips; pan-fried fish filets; Dungeness crab cakes with chipotle lime mayo; summer salads with light vinaigrettes; lemon chicken skewers.
