Crouchen Riesling 2023

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

A wine of flavour and body with enticing hints of ripe melon and a delicate finish to which riesling adds length of flavour and a distinctive stamp of elegance. This wine should be served well chilled and enjoyed when young and fresh.

Food Pairings

This approachable and versatile wine is a great accompaniment to a variety of spicy dishes such as Singapore style chilli crab or a warm salad of pumpkin, couscous, shaved pear, green sultana and harissa, as the natural fruit sweetness helps balance the spicy zing. Crouchen Riesling also complements light desserts such as pannacotta.

The fermentation was halted by chilling and the wine was bottled soon after with a final alcohol of 10.5%.
