The 2014 vintage season was certainly rated as unusual in the Woodman Vineyard. A few severe heat spikes were interspersed with rain and cool – sometimes even cold weather. This was wonderful for the vines, with the following fine, cool and clear conditions producing an extended gentle ripening period, allowing the grapes to achieve full maturity with great flavour. Extended skin contact at crushing has produced extra complexity on the palate and a more approachable fruity young wine.

Riesling, unlike most white wine varieties, has a remarkable ability to improve with gentle ageing in the bottle. The change from a fresh, young style to a rich complex aged style is the hallmark of this variety from a superior grape-growing area.
