Limus - 2019 Riesling
Fact: Kyatt Dixon is one of the most exciting young winemakers in Australia. Did you know he has a doctoral background in researching crustose algae, including the Peyssonneliales, Hildenbrandiales and crustose members of the Gigartinales? Now you know. Anyway, back to wine. After moving to Mt Gambier in 2017, Kyatt leases several vineyards around the region and craftes incredible wines that glow with both the purity of their making and the lovable personality of their maker.
Kyatt's 2019 Riesling comprises fruit from the Apple Farm vineyard. Grapes saw a couple of full hogsheads of briefly macerated (4 days) juice, then kept in old oak for about a year before being bottled, as always, without sulphur. Prefaced with pretty aromatics, this Riesling is richly textured, with savoury cadences and omnipresent bright acidity. Exceptional with food. Don't serve it too cold xo
