On the nose there are aromas of sweet orange, floral and perfume. there are flavours of tangerine, apricot and green apple, with a citrus backbone, leading to a crisp lingering finish.

The grapes for our Riesling is 100% estate grown, hand-picked and with limited intervention to show a true expression of the vintage.
The grapes were picked in two separate lots, one week apart to maximize ripeness and flavor. The 2nd lot of grapes were whole-cluster pressed, with 14 hours of skin contact, before pressing. The wine was then stainless steel fermented with minimal intervention. The fermentation was at a low temperature between 11 - 14 degrees celcius and took 21 days to complete. As with our other Riesling, the fermentation was stopped to leave a small amount of residual sugar to balance out the acid in this wine.
