RIESLING 2019

$35.00 inc. GST

Vintage notes
A wetter than average spring encouraged strong vine growth and provided good soil moisture to help the vines through summer’s record daytime temperatures and prolonged heatwaves. Our typical warm days and cool nights returned in autumn which slows ripening and preserves delicate flavours. Above average rainfall in March presented some challenges for harvest and required careful timing of picking (i.e. to minimise water retention in the grapes) but disease pressures were minimal.
Tasting notes
Dry style in the typical Canberra Riesling fashion. Fresh, crisp acidity with crunchy green apple and lemon lime flavours. Created from fruit exclusively from the Vintner’s Daughter vineyard.

Cellar for

Description

Vintage notes

Dry conditions across the 2018-19 growing season resulted in slightly lower yields from our Riesling vines but outstanding quality as dry weather eliminates disease. Furthermore fruit flavour is always more concentrated and intense if the vines are a little stressed due to water restrictions. Nevertheless it is important to reach a balance between vine health and fruit flavour and supplementary irrigation ensured good canopy growth to protect the fruit from sunburn. Ensuring adequate sun protection for Riesling fruit has been proven to reduce the development of kerosene aroma compounds as the wine ages. Cool nights in February gave the vines some rest from the heat and slowed down ripening. The fruit was hand picked in the cool of the early morning on the . A cool and slow ferment with cultured yeast followed over two weeks in a stainless steel tank to preserve varietal flavour.
