Style: A Riesling that is both intense and textural. Restrained and fine, this 2022 delivers the spine-tingling acidity and powerful extract that is sure to excite Riesling lovers. Flavours of citrus zest, red apple skin, and yuzu linger for a long time.

Season: the 2022 season started cool during flowering, which meant low yields for early budding varieties. The season was mostly mild and dry, but some well timed rain kept vines healthy for what was a later than normal harvest. Source: from high and cool sites in Lenswood and Mt Torrens.
Varies between vineyards but mostly clay loam topsoil over red/yellow clay intermixed with Ironstone and quartz.
Vinification: the grapes were all hand picked. Half were whole bunch pressed and half were crushed and pressed, each fermented separately.
The wine was blended and then spent four months on lees prior to bottling.
