Catherine Marshall Riesling '19

Catherine Marshall is well recognized as one of South Africa’s top winemakers. She was way ahead of her time, starting to produce wine in 1997, one of the first garage wineries in a wine scene that mainly was dominated by the national cooperative and the established Stellenbosch estates.

In 2007, Cathy refocused her production and purchased land in the Elgin region of South Africa. An area that was previously more noted for its apple and pear trees, it is now the pre-eminent cool climate wine producing region in the Western Cape. Through the consideration of the effect of climate change, and where her flagship varietal Pinot Noir would be best suited, Cathy along with Richard Kershaw have given the wine consumers the evidence of its potential greatness. Through this change, she was able to consider additional varietals to cultivate.

Last month we featured her Pinot Noir. This month, you give you her delectably dry Riesling!

With the cool climates of Elgin, Riesling is another wonderful fit for the terroir of Elgin, producing intense, bright, pure and fresh wines of character. With extended hanging time, these east-facing slopes planted with Riesling allows for a slow ripening season. Delicate aromas are balanced with lower alcohol levels and striking acidity.

On the nose, lemon oil, grapefruit, and flint. Lightweight, vibrant, with elderflower and mineral notes. The ultimate “freshie,” you can likely drink the entire bottle by yourself in under 20 minutes!
