2019 Run Free by Singlefile Riesling
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
2019 saw beautifully mild and consistent weather throughout the growing season which encouraged optimum ripening conditions. Several rain events through February made the start of vintage cool and helped the early ripening varieties retain desirable acid levels.
This 2019 Riesling was picked in pristine conditions in March 2019. The parcels of juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. The wine was bottled in July 2019.
The wine shows a lifted bouquet of lime and green apple. The palate displays a crisp flavoursome style with subtle minerality and a clean fresh finish.
