TASTING NOTES

The German clone grapes were vinified and once the perfect balance between sugar and acidity was reached, the fermentation was stopped to retain a hint of natural fruit sugars. Intense flavours of lime through to white peach and Granny Smith apple. A superb accompaniment to the lighter spectrum of Asian cuisine.

HARVESTING

The riesling was harvested between the 20th February and 5th of March 2020 from unirrigated vineyards.

WINEMAKING & MATURATION

The Riesling vineyards were harvested at 21°B. The grapes were pressed in a pneumatic press with the free-run juice being separated from the press fraction.  After 2 days of settling in tank, the clear juice was racked off its lees and inoculated with a French strain of yeast.  Cold fermentation at 15°C occurred in stainless steel tanks until the perfect balance between the Residual Sugar and acidity was reached.  The fermentation in this vintage was stopped at about 0˚B to retain a hint of natural residual sugar.
