The 2016 season may well have set a new high water mark in terms of quality of fruit harvested. Many remarked that the harvested fruit was picture perfect. The entire season was free of any extreme weather events and whilst we did harvest a few days earlier than usual, we nonetheless had optimum ripening of pristine fruit and saw the expected richness, spicy complexity and texture that we love.Fruit is crushed, stems removed and the must is left to soak a while before pressing off the juice & overnight cooling. The clear juice that is fermented in open 2000 litre vats [14oC to 16oC]. Wine is bottled after a further 6 months. Due to lower fruit-set the previous spring, the 2014 harvest of Riesling was smaller than average yet quality was maintained with a freshness and vitality in the finished wine. This wine greets you with intense aromas of citrus and hints of fresh green apples, which are in turn reflected on the palate. The wine is bone dry but has a lovely acid softness and phenolic balance on the palate along with persistence and generosity of flavour. We can confidently anticipate enjoyment for the next decade and a half or even longer?
