WINE NOTES: Vibrant aromatics, with clementine orange, mayer lemon, beeswax and suggestions of raspberry ripple ice cream. Seriously concentrated palate with red fruits, orange citrus, apricot and stony mineral textures.Tense, juicy finish.
RECOMMENDED CELLARING:Approachable on release, is a suitable candidate for long-term ageing in the cellar for those who enjoy the more complex flavours of bottle aged Riesling.
VINIFICATION: Selective hand harvest on 8th April at 21.3 brix (91 Öchsle), from the “front” old vines, 5% botrytis on average in each cluster was tolerated in this pass, bunches being selected by appearance. Only bunches that were a rich bronzy gold on the front were taken. Bunches were pressed whole and the resultant juice fermented cool in stainless steel.
