VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The Blue Lake vineyard is an established dry grown vineyard situated on the south-west plains of the Mount Barker sub-region in the Great Southern. The Riesling fruit was harvested in March 2018.

The primary focus of the winemaking process was to preserve the delicate flavours and aromas of the vineyard’s fruit which was handpicked to avoid macerations (phenolics) and whole bunch pressed for the same reason. The juice was cold settled and fermented with a neutral yeast strain at a temperature of 14°C before preparation for bottling in July 2018.

THE WINE

The colour is light and the aromatics display a combination of citrus flavours of lemon and lime. The palate is characterised by the acidic drive of the wine. A dry riesling, the wine displays intense lime flavours with subtle minerality (which will develop further with age). The wine has a long finish with a lingering acidity.
