Riesling 2014

Riesling 2014

Grapes were hand selected and only perfect bunches were picked, as a result we only harvested 2 tons per hectare. Despite the low yield, the Riesling vines provided excellent quality fruit with super acidity and fresh aromatics.

The Riesling is made in a natural and minimalistic style. The wine was naturally fermented and left on the lees for 6 months. Long extended skin contact before pressing, wild fermentation, no added enzymes and minimal winemaking techniques were used when making the making of this wine.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant in appearance, the wine is elegant with distinct terroir expression. The intense palate balances a rich floral and savoury flavours with a good acidity. Citrus blossom flavours follow into a long, full and fresh finish.

Maturation

6 months on the lees.
