The 2019 growing season was a scorcher of a year. The year started with a cool
spring and then summer ramping up to some of the warmest months
on record. Due to all this warm weather vintage began early. The Riesling
grapes are sourced from a Loira vineyard situated in the Tamar Valley,
This wine was harvested on April 1st, 2019. The grapes were hand
harvested and gently processed in the winery. They were
destemmed into fermenters and left on skins for 1 day. The grapes
were then gently basket pressed and moved to stainless steel tanks
for fermentation. The wine was matured for 4 months in stainless
steel. Minimal fining and filtration were utilised.
No animal products were used in the production of this wine.
The nose on the wine bursts with fresh lemon and granny smith apple.
As the bouquet of the wine starts to open, one can find bits of
talc and oyster shell with a beautiful finish of white floral afternotes.
On the palette there is blood orange and pink grapefruit.
The wine finishes with a hint of honey, and a fresh bright
mineral like acidity.
