The 2018 Riesling is a blend made from two mature vineyards in the Coal River Valley (50%) and the Huon Valley (50%) harvested at the middle and end of March respectively. The hand-picked fruit was lightly crushed before gentle pressing to tank, with pressings included for structure and flavour. After racking off juice solids the blend components were initially ‘fermented’ briefly with a ‘non-conventional’ Metschnikowia pulcherimma strain before fermenting with a our own blend of strains to complete fermentation. Once complete a period of maturation on the yeast lees allowed the wines to further develop texture. The blending together the powerful Coal River Valley fruit with the finesse and delicacy of the Huon Valley has created a wine with intensity and finesse.
