RIESLING 2018

$30.00 inc. GST

Vintage notes
Spring was exceptionally warm reaching 30˚c on 23 September ( a new record) which encouraged bud burst a week later. This was followed by a very wet start to summer and a freak hail storm in January which reduced the quantity of the crop but fortunately quality was not affected as the grapes were too hard and small to split. Weeks of heatwaves in January are becoming a common occurrence now but we are fortunate that our old vines with their deep roots are resilient to these conditions only needing minimal night watering to survive the 35˚c plus temperatures. Autumn was warmer than average but nights were chilly preserving fruit flavour. The fruit was hand-picked in the early morning while still cool.
