McPherson Basilisk Riesling

This beautifully structured wine displays enticing floral aromas of citrus blossom and perfume. The seamless palate exhibits Strathbogie minerals, complexed with generous amounts of perfumed orange blossom and lemon/lime flavours, with a crisp acid finish providing exceptional length. Drink now but donít be afraid to lock it away for a while and watch it change with time.

As this is a crisp, dry style Riesling it is an ideal match with fresh salmon or barbequed prawns. For something a little more filling, try with a slightly spicy Asian dish such as Pad Thai.

More Information

The fruit for the Basilisk Riesling was sourced from two distinctive vineyard sites within Central Victoria known for their distinctive Riesling production. The Strathbogie Ranges has long, warm sunny days and cool evening temperatures allowing for perfect fruit flavour development whilst retaining natural acidity. Whereas the Nagambie Lakes has warmer ripening condition, however still maintaining floral aromatics and excellent acidity. The fusion of fruit from these two regions adds subtlety and complexity to this varietal.
