This year’s Riesling shows our classic lime and citrus characters along with the slatey acid and minerality that comes from the soils of old shale woodlands on our Kells Creek Vineyard. With a couple of years ageing it will develop into a satisfyingly, complex wine.
|Notes From The Winemaker:||The bud burst in 2017 came 2 weeks earlier than previous years resulting in excellent flowering and fruit. A dry Spring/Summer led to perfect ripening conditions post veraison, therefore disease pressures were low and excellent clean fruit was harvested. Add to this the dry summer across the eastern coastline of NSW, leaving the cool nights to help with a slow ripening period. The wine was first stored in cool, stainless steel ferment for 10 days. Aged on lees in tank until July then fined, filtered and bottled.|
