Three old-vine sites experienced near perfect ripening conditions for Riesling in January. The early start to Spring & Summer meant we picked earlier than last year. Late January rainfall heralded a mild February allowing the Riesling to ripen progressively while retaining great natural acidity.
In physics the triple point is the thermodynamic conditions at which the solid, liquid and gaseous phases of a substance coexist in equilibrium. Our quest is for the oft-elusive triple point of riesling: precision, texture & balance. riesling from three old vine sites: Springton, flaxman valley & angaston hills. hand-picked. Whole-bunch pressed. 18 hours skins contact. Exotic aromas of Jasmine, honeysuckle and Mandarin oat alluringly from the glass and lead to a texture laden yet delicate palate evoking new season pink lady apples, mandarin with a nely textured nish of mineral bath salts with a subtle edge of refreshing quinine.
Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

Clear, pale lemon.
Refreshing green apple, mint and pineapple.
Driven by lemon and passionfruit, the acid is clean and gentle, balanced by a slightly grapefruit sweetness at the end of the palate.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
