Langmeil Live Wire Riesling 2010
Pale straw with green hues. Lifted citrus blossom, fresh lime and granny smith apples fill the nostrils, with hints of talc and honey. Intense lime and apple fruits flow onto a crisp and lively palate with the acidity balancing out the fruit sweetness and the long zesty finish.
Incredible Mosel-style, medium-sweet Riesling from the cool climate Eden Valley.
Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, salsa, fresh salads, seared scallops or spiced infused Asian-style cuisine.
Langmeil has always championed Riesling, the world’s finest white. Eden Valley, high above the Barossa floor, allows Riesling the potential for great bottle age and ability to transmit the characteristics of the soil, without compromising its inimitable character.
Langmeil’s Riesling is picked from very old, tangled, dry grown vines which flourish on ancient soils in the cooler Eden Valley, high above the Barossa floor. After harvest, the pristine fruit is gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures to produce this delicate, yet intense wine, balanced with crisp natural acidity, typical of the renowned Eden Valley region of the Barossa.
James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion has rated Langmeil Winery with five stars, placing it amongst the very top echelon of Australian Wineries.
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: "A very attractive Mosel style, the expected sweetness perfectly balanced by crisp, refreshing acidity, with flavours of lime, lemon and green apple; has a very long finish. Expertly made." 94 points
