Vineyard
The Riesling was hand picked early on the morning if the 2nd March into 1/2 tonne bins from a Vineyard just to the north of Forreston in the Northern Adelaide Hills. The Vineyard is on a steep hill with a southerly aspect, this allows the fruit to develop slowly and retain great natural acidity. Harvested on a combination of acid balance and flavour development with the result a wine that required minimal input.

Winery
Destemmed only and only gently pressed to extract the subtle free run juice with purity of fruit. Settled for 3 days and racked when juice was clear. Allowed to begin ferment naturally then overseeded with a very low rate of a varietal enhancing yeast for 21 days to preserve and enhance the varietal characters. Aged on lees post ferment to build texture and body in the final wine while adding a subtle complexity as well. Clarified and bottled mid June.
