Nadja's Vineyard Riesling was planted in 2001, in shallow soils that lay atop thick limestone on the edge of the escarpment. This is our iconic Riesling and highlights the citrus and chalky notes that are typical of this vineyard. Hand-picked, whole cluster pressed and a cool, slow fermentation provide the more pure expression. Fermentation is halted to balance out the racy acidity with some natural sweetness from the Riesling juice. The wine is bottled in the spring to capture the freshness of Riesling flavours.
