The 2015 Riesling is a wine made from 100% estate farmed fruit, primarily from a single block of Riesling planted in 2004. The fruit was harvested by hand between September 25 and October 5, providing us with diversity in flavours. Some of the crop was whole cluster pressed and some was crushed gently before pressing. The juice was fermented exclusively in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures to retain the varietal aromas. In order to retain natural sweetness to balance the bright acidity, fermentation was stopped after 3-4 weeks. The final blend was assembled in January 2016 and the wine bottled in March.
