Single Vineyard Riesling 2022
Handpicked on 22 April 2022. Whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolic extraction, the juice was settled for 48 hours before racking to fermentation with a neutral yeast strain allowing clear varietal and vineyard expression. Fermentation was cool to preserve aromatic intensity, lasting approximately 14 days. Post fermentation, the wine remained on light yeast lees to build some soft mid-palate texture before minimal fining prior to bottling on 26 September 2022.
Mid to pale lemon yellow with a green gold hue. The nose of this wine is an amalgam of citrus and floral with distinct brown lime and abundant rose petal and lavender. Hints of mineral talc and subtle dried herbs add complexity. The palate has a soft and textured entry with lemon drops and yellow rose petal carrying through to deeper honey and very subtle pine lime notes. A fuller texture through the mid palate ensures a gentle and silky exit.
