PALATE

Characteristics of mandarin, nectar and jasmine blossom fold into an unctuous finish on the palate.

VINTAGE

Rain events did create moderate disease pressure during the growing season but were often followed by prolonged periods of mild and dry weather there was little disease occurrence. Temperatures were generally moderate with higher-than-average low temperatures but no hot weather and certainly no heat waves. We meandered through harvest at a gentle pace.

WINEMAKING

The Riesling was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed very gently, before settling in tank to clarify the juice.  The clear juice was then cool fermented to dryness in stainless steel tank. This slow, cool ferment preserved the absolute fruit purity evident in the grapes, and after blending and filtering,  the wine was bottled in late June, 2021, to retain the freshness and aromatics of the fruit.
