The German clone grapes were vinified and once the perfect balance between sugar and acidity was reached, the fermentation was stopped to retain a hint of natural fruit sugars. Intense flavours of lime through to white peach and Granny Smith apple. A superb accompaniment to the lighter spectrum of Asian cuisine.
The riesling was harvested between the 15th of March 2017 from unirrigated vineyards.
The Riesling vineyards were harvested at 21°B. The grapes were pressed in a pneumatic press with the free run juice being separated from the press fraction. After 2 days of settling in tank the clear juice was racked off its lees and inoculated with a French strain of yeast. Cold fermentation at 15°C occurred in stainless steel tanks until the perfect balance between the Residual Sugar and acidity was reached. The fermentation in this vintage was stopped at about 0˚B to retain a hint of natural residual sugar.
