Bright pale straw with green hues. Fruit aromas of white blossom, talc, fresh meyer lemon & lime. The palate displays more citrus flavor and lingers. Textured and fine.

Winemaker's Notes
Riesling grapes were picked in several passes to ensure optimal ripeness across Block 2. A combination of both whole bunch pressed parcels and destemmed & crushed before pressing. The juice chilled and cold settled. Each parcel kept separate and fermented at cool temperatures. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine is left on lees for a period post ferment to build additional texture. Blended and bottled in July.

VINTAGE NOTES
The 2020 growing season in Mount Barker began with again another dry winter which continued through to harvest. Early budburst and a dry Summer lead to very early harvest dates across all varieties with very light yields. Some welcome rain in March helped maintain canopy health and ripening in our red varieties. The small harvest was characterized by small concentrated berries with great flavor intensity.
