This wild ferment Riesling is bone dry and displays intense lime and citrus flavour, with beautifully balanced acidity. Sourced from the dry grown Bimbadeen vineyard in the Clare Valley, the grapes were picked in early February, crushed and left to ferment naturally. With a further 5 months on yeast lees to develop complexity, the result is a polished wine with a lingering mineral weight on the palate. Perfect for a warm summer’s day.

The dry grown grapes where picked and pressed with no additions and  free run juice was taken (no pressings used) and no sulphur was added at any stage during this whole process. This would allow the grapes to drop any phenolic flavours. The juice was then let to naturally ferment with no yeast being added over a 4 week period at around 14 degrees. It fermented to dryness over this period and no malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal sulphur was added and the wine was then left to sit on its yeast lees to develop mid palate weight for 4  months. This developed complexity and weight.

After this period, the wine was filtered to the bottling line.
