Pressing Matters R9 Riesling

Variety: Riesling
Region: Coal River Valley , Tasmania
Vintage: 2017

The R9, with 9 grams of sugar per litre,  is our most popular level of sweetness (in this case, off-dryness). Fresh , bright ,clean and lemony as well. Most popular Riesling style and perhaps the most conventional; this is what is usually expected with a dry Riesling. The residual sugar, although only 9 grams, is enough to broaden the wine on the palate and the acidic lemon and lime found in the R0 give way to the sweeter versions of the fruit. Located in Tasmania’s Coal River Valley Pressing Matters is a small vineyard and winery that produces high quality, award winning Riesling and Pinot Noir. Almost 3ha of Riesling at the vineyard in the Coal River Valley.It is on a perfect north-facing slope, and the Mosel-style Rieslings are making their mark. By having only two varieties of grapes Pressing Matters is focused on producing wines that bring out the best of these varieties. Four styles of Riesling have varying levels of residual sugar, meaning are able to allow the fruit to express all of its characters over a range of wine styles.

Awards:

Silver Medal, 2020 Tasmanian Wine Show

“Off-dry rieslings are perhaps the easiest to drink on their own and savoured with food; this is no different. A restrained wine with that dash of sweetness settling the palate, although certainly plenty of zesty acidity, oyster shell, preserved ginger, all manner of lemon and lime favours to keep this true.” AWC - 93 points  Jane Faulkner,  Australian Wine Companion – August 2018

Light, bright yellow colour, with a very spicy aroma, fresh and bright and clean, lemony as well, while the palate is just off-dry and fruity as well as delicate. A refined wine with good compactness and length. It demands food – such as fish.”  - 92/100 – Huon Hooke, The Real Review – Sept 18
