This is such a pretty Riesling! Lovely ripe melon and white peach with field flowers. Light in alcohol but packed with flavour. Perfect for a spring day, or a summer day, or a fall day ...

Handling: Hand Picked into small 25 kg picking bins allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. Fruit was hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. Juice yield less than 600 litres per tonne and transferred into stainless steel fermentation tank. 36 hours of natural cold settling then racked off gross lees.
Fermentation: Fermented with commercial yeast strains X5 and BA11. Fermentation temperature set to 12.5 degrees Celsius began Nov. 9, 2009. Stopped with 26.5 g/L natural residual sugar.
The ferment was kept on lees until 25th January 2010.
