Riesling

A small plot of Riesling grafted in 2008, on deep sandy soil with pockets of black clay.
The vineyard is in the westernmost reaches of our vineyard, at the feet of a depression in the hills that form the backbone of our estate, which funnels cold sea wind into the valley. The vineyard is therefore one of our coolest, but rarely suffers from spring frosts.

Tasting Notes 2018

Pale straw in colour. The nose is intensely floral, with lemon peel and mango. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, the acidity balanced by plenty of extract. Long and mineral finish. The wine can be enjoyed now, but will develop nicely over the next ten years

Tasting Notes 2017

Pale straw in colour. The nose is classically Riesling, with lemon peel, apricot and a hint of quince jelly from the inclusion of some noble botrytis. Dense and juicy in the mouth, the acidity balanced by plenty of extract. Long and mineral finish. The wine can be enjoyed now, but will develop nicely in the years to come.
