This dry Riesling leads with ripe citrus notes then moves into a mixture of peach blossom and flesh. Linear grapefruit characters introduce the wine onto the palate; there is a lovely line and drive to the wine. A pithy phenolic structure, works in harmony with the acidity to frame the finish of the wine.

  • Our Dry Riesling attempts to balance flavour and palate weight with the wine’s natural acidity. The warm season enabled an earlier pick from our Templars Hill vineyard on the 6th April. It was carefully hand-harvested and processed through the winery – the wine was fermented on full solids to help enhance palate weight. The wine was fermented cool in stainless steel using indigenous yeast to retain maximum varietal expression. The wine was fermented slowly to dryness, and then rested unstirred on its gross yeast lees; trying to build texture but not flavour. The wine stayed on gross lees for ten months, and was then filtered and stabilised for bottling in February.
