The Riesling from our estate grown fruit was harvested over 12 days in the early hours of the morning in late March. The free run juice of each parcel is fermented separately. The resulting wine is a fine tuned blend created from parcels including the original planting of 1971, through to a block of Geisenheim clone, planted in 2003.
Excellent growing conditions during spring led to healthy canopies and set the vineyard up beautifully for the rest of the season. A mild, yet very dry ripening season resulted in pristine fruit quality with an abundance of flavour intensity.
Brilliant pale straw with emerald flecks.
Intense flavours of lime juice and pink grapefruit. Bright, sherbety and lively on the palate with a lingering mineral acidity and slight powdery texture.
Whilst ready to enjoy now, this wine will gain in complexity over the next eight to ten years.
