Crafted from Riesling vines planted in 1968, on Mountadam’s western vineyard, this Riesling expresses lifted floral aromas. It has clean, crisp citrus flavours and delicate minerality.
The Riesling on the Western Mountadam High Eden vineyard was planted in 1968 and 1974 respectively. All fruit used to craft this wine was sourced from the 1968 plantings of Riesling. This particular vineyard sourced Leo Buring Leonay over the last 40 years and was reunited with the eastern side of Mountadam in 2015. The vineyards sit at 550m above sea level with a sheltered southerly aspect.
Harvested using a selected destemming harvester over the 24th – 26th February 2020 from the Estates Western vineyard at 12.3 ºBe. Treated reductively in the winery with free run juice and only very light pressings for flavour. Total extraction was 580L per tonne. Cold settled, clear juice was racked into stainless steel for cool fermentation. Fermented through to dryness.
