The perfect wine for those wanting to experience a low alcohol alternative made in an off-dry style. Lovely citrus flavours of warm honey, finishing with a crunchy acid drive.

Having been lucky enough to experience the amazing off-dry Rieslings from Germany we wanted to try and recreate the sensation of off-dry with the balance of acidity and alcohol, which holds these wines together. Our first attempt is the RS37 Semillon.

The challenge with this wine was stopping the ferment with just the right amount of residual sugar (hence the RS37 tag..) After using a neutral yeast strain and running the ferment cold, we spent a lot of time tasting this wine at all the different stages, with an idea of 35-40 grams in our minds. At this level the sugar/acid/alcohol balance is just right, with lovely citrus flavours and warm honey, finishing with a crunchy acid drive. Great for those wanting to experience a low alcohol alternative.

We are enjoying the RS37 with barbequed salmon fillets.

A beautiful food wine to be drunk icy cold, but we expect it will cellar for the short term.
