Riesling

Description

The grapes were picked in two separate lots, one week apart to maximize ripeness and flavor. The 1st lot of grapes were whole-cluster pressed, with 14 hours of skin contact, before pressing. The wine was then stainless steel fermented with minimal intervention. The fermentation was at a low temperature between 11-14 degrees celsius and too 30 days to complete. As with our other Rieslings, the fermentation was stopped to leave a small amount of residual sugar to balance out the acid in this wine.

Tasting Notes:

The grapes for our Riesling is 100% estate grown, hand-picked and with limited intervention to show a true expression of the vintage. On the nose there are aromas of honeysuckle, pear and green apple. The palate has flavours of pink grapefruit, nectarine, and honey with a touch of minerality, leading to a crisp, lingering finish.
