2017 Josef Chromy DELIKAT SGR Riesling
Delikat (Czech for delicate) is a crisp refreshing Riesling made with 60 grams per litre of residual sugar (SGR).
Colour: Pale Straw Aroma: Delicate aromas of honey blossom, lime and lemon sherbet overlay with crisp fresh juicy Golden Delicious apple. Palate: The palate displays intense juicy lime and lemon sorbet, underpinned by a fine acid profile and the natural grape sugars, creating a wine of elegance, balance and delicacy.
SGR (Sixty Grams Residual) Made in a Germanic style, the grapes are hand-picked to retain high natural acidity and ensure minimal oxidation. Pressing commences immediately, and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks. The fermentation is conducted at cool temperatures, and stopped when the balance between the natural sugars and acid is optimal.
