AN AROMATIC, FRESH AND ZIPPY DRY WHITE

This 2016 Riesling is a beautifully fresh, vibrant wine with intense citrus aromas of lemon and lime and complimented by a hint of fresh-cut apple. These elegant flavours linger on the crisp, zesty palate. Re-invigorated Riesling!

    Vintage Conditions: 2016 saw an unusual vintage with budburst commencing two weeks earlier than normal. This early pattern continued all season, from flowering, through to veraison and ultimately harvest, brought on by the prevailing dry and mild winter conditions. Spring and summer were warm, fortunately with minimal extreme heat. The lack of rain and consequent dry soils throughout the course of the season made irrigation essential. Vintage commenced in mid-February with Chardonnay and the early pattern continued right throughout harvest with the Riesling harvested on 17 March.

    Vinification: Riesling fruit was handpicked, allowing us to retain all of the natural elements that make this a highly-rated Riesling, from a region that boasts only a handful of Riesling vineyards. Fruit was harvested at low pH, ensuring bright natural acidity. Whole fruit bunches were placed into the press and gently squeezed with the free run juice being transferred to stainless steel tank. Cool temperature fermentation took place and final racking and bottling was completed in July. The wine was left to rest post bottling for three months prior to release.
