    • Vineyard Notes

      On a north facing bank of the Derwent River this 28-year-old cool-climate vineyard in Southern Tasmania has its Riesling block on the uppermost slope. The soils are shallow, permeable loams over limestone that allow this variety to develop intensity and definition while retaining delicacy. The vines were leaf plucked 6 weeks prior to harvest to allow greater sunlight penetration on the fruit.

    • Winemaking

      Hand-picked at flavour ripeness, crushed and soaked on their skins for 24 hours, then pressed under inert gas. Fermentation was stopped when the wine reached a balance between alcohol, flavour, phenolics and residual sugar. Minimal fining and filtration, then bottled.
