Riesling, ‘Foudre Ferment’, Best’s Great Western

The 2012 was the inaugural wine of this style from Best’s. The aromatic juice is given extended skin contact then wild fermented in a large French oak foudre made by the famous cooper Marc Grenier. The resultant wine exhibits both the complexities of a barrel ferment and spontaneous fermentation without the overt oak flavour, due to the large size and subtlety of the foudre.

This wine is a representation of another facet of Riesling’s charms. Displaying complex aromatic honeyed richness with texture and acidity to balance, it is the ideal accompaniment to stinky creamy cheeses.

Tasting Notes

Complex honeyed aromatics of lychees, lemon curd and lime blossoms with a hint of toasted malt and ginger spice. Citrus and honey flavours dominate with a fine lingering texture of lemon curd, lime pith, dry biscuits and creamy acidity.
