VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Selected parcels of fruit from both the Porongurup and Frankland River sub-regions of the Great Southern which delivered excellent growing conditions in 2016, winter and spring bring reasonably dry but with well-timed rainfall in January delivery the moisture needed for further vine growth. Both parcels of free run juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. Gentle lees stirring was carried out to add subtle texture. The wine was bottled in July 2016.

THE WINE

The colour is light with a green tinge, the aromatics display apple blossom and citrus tones. The palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight acidic finish which is a feature of the Bates Rock vineyard. It is anticipated in time this wine will develop a stone-line minerality and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity.

I've never been a Riesling drinker but I recently enjoyed this Riesling with Indian Curry. It was perfect with it so I had more without the curry & found it to be a beautiful drink without food also.
