2017 ‘Watervale’ Riesling. 12.1% Alc. 400 dozen produced

The Riesling fruit used to produce this wine was grown on a South East slope at the Northern end of the Gullyview Vineyard. The vines are 17 years old and planted on red clay on limestone, ‘Terra Rosa’ soil. We hand picked over 2 days, a week apart, the first pick was the 3rd Febuary, the second pick on the 10th. In the winery half the fruit was pressed straight away, the other half received 24 hours of skin contact and received a small sulphur add in the press tray. All juice was cold settled for a few days and racked off dirt, fine solids were kept for ferment. Natural ferment was carried out in a mix of ceramic eggs, stainless steel tanks and barrique barrels; and lasted for around three weeks. The wine was racked off ferment and lees and then spent 5 months on fine lees in stainless steel. Prior to bottling a small sulphur addition was made, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered
