A variety uncommon to the Mornington Peninsula, Riesling is a textural white wine famed for its distinctly fruity and floral aromas. A favourably versatile grape, Riesling is uniquely resilient in that its growth potential is undeterred by climates and soils in which many other varieties would not thrive. Riesling can flourish in cool and warm temperatures and adapt to diverse soil types. Each vintage delivers a unique and distinct flavour profile, ranging from completely dry to intensely sweet. Aromatically complex, Riesling’s distinguished taste is a delicate dance between white floral notes and refreshingly illuminating acidity.
Experience Riesling The Montalto Way
As we moved into summer this passing year, Montalto released a unique collection of aromatic, textural and complex new white wines, ideal for enjoying during the warmer months. Montalto’s unmistakable floral Riesling has been vinified from our home vineyard in Red Hill South from the same 1.2 acres of vines since 1990. Year upon year, Montalto’s intricate vinification process has delivered Rieslings with individualistic textures, aromas and tannins. The unusual terroir and sub-regionality of Red Hill South, accompanied by Montalto’s unmatched production process, has produced Riesling with classic flavours and aromas paired with notes distinctive to the cool climate of the Mornington Peninsula.
Those looking to enrich their palate will not be disappointed with Montalto’s unique take on Riesling. Why not try our Montalto Riesling 2022, which delivers notes such as jasmine, apple blossom and talc, delicately reinforced with flavours like fleshy nectarine, fresh nettles and fennel seed.
