The 2015 vintage was mild and dry
producing fruit with gentle aromatics
and purity. The vines held onto
leaf quite well providing essential
dappled light during the ripening
phase.
Winemaking
Classic Euro style Riesling with a
lovely balance of sugar, acidity
and dry extract. Hand picked, cool
fermentation and then racked,
sulphured and left on fine lees for 3
months. Perhaps our best Riesling
since 2011.
