Hand picked Riesling is delivered to Petaluma for immediate processing. The bunches are de-stemmed, crushed and chilled to less than 5C then treated to Willmes tank presses. The free run juice is cold settled for a natural clarification then racked to fermentation tanks and inoculated. Fermentation is monitored over several weeks at temperatures of 10°C to 13°C rising to 17°C over the last few grams of sugar. The wine is chilled to below 0°C and the yeast allowed to settle. A gentle filtration retains all the fruit, dulcet aromas and lavish flavours.
Pale golden straw. A delicate, floral wine displaying minerality and lemon lime perfumes. Forward, mouth filling and generous, exceptional depth of layered fruit and distinctive characters abound, a seductive mouthful of bosc pear and white peaches, lime and green tea flavours. The passionfruit, pear and apple expressions are backed up by lovely intense lemon-limes with a slatey, minerality that lingers long and dry upon a highly polished finish.
