2014 Singlefile Great Southern Botrytis Riesling
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
Frankland River is a premier wine growing sub-region of the Great Southern and is recognised for its riesling, cabernet and shiraz. This botrytised riesling fruit is from the Riversdale vineyard and was picked in mid May 2014. The wine was picked and gently de-stemmed and had skin contact for a day. It was then pressed and settled, allowing a wild yeast fermentation to start, the fermentation ceased at 130 grams per litre. The wine was bottled in October 2014.
The wine displays aromas of apricot, mandarin and subtle savoury complexities. It is medium bodied, with a richness and textured mouthfeel yet with a delicacy at the same time. It has complexity and length of flavour with a good acidity to finish.
