Harvest Date

24 March 2016

Vineyards

Sutherlands Creek, Geelong

Viticulture

An early bud burst brought on by a dry winter and spring led into a good, dry growing season. Yields were excellent and the fruit matured nicely, coming in as one of the last parcels of the vintage.

Wine Making

Fruit was hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. Juice was allowed to naturally clarify then fermented at moderate (14-16°C) temperatures till dryness. The wine remained in contact with lees for eight weeks before being racked and allowed to mature in tank before bottling.

pH

3.05

Titratable Acidity

6.4g/L

Alcohol

13.2%

Residual Sugar

2.8g/L

Colour

Youthful straw green, clear star-bright edge.

Bouquet

Lime, orange peel, white florals and hint of candied musk.

Palate

Beautiful supple front palate of lime and green apple leading into a fresh line of refreshing Riesling acidity. The palate is framed by some chalkiness and phenolic grip adding interest. A
long finish and the lingering pithy citrus leads you back for more. Our 9th vintage of Riesling from this outstanding vineyard is totally delicious as a young wine, but has the intensity and structure to age gracefully through the medium term.

Cellaring

3-4 years in a cool place.

Food Match

Kingfi sh ceviche, shaved fennel salad, or by itself

Release Date

February 2017
