2018 Dry Riesling

$28.00

Category:

Description

This wine is dry and vivacious with intense citrus and tropical fruit flavours.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Grapes for this wine were hand-harvested in late April from the Cromwell basin area of Central Otago.

CLIMATE – A long warm autumn with hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of fine clean fruit still holding good acidity.

SOILS – Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.

VINE AGE – 20-year-old vines

TRELLIS STYLE – VSP

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS:
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise extraction of skin phenolics and cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferment was stopped to maintain a small residual sugar level to balance the acidity.

Bottled: 30th October 2018
Alcohol: 13%
Acidity: 9 g/L
Residual sugar: 8 g/L
Closure: Screwcap
