REFLECTING A GREAT YEAR FOR RIESLING

Fine, clear weather in the ripening period with mild days and cool nights enabled the Riesling grapes to head towards maturity gently. This brilliant weather allowed the grapes to achieve full maturity at 12.6 Baume, ripe for picking on March 11th.

I changed the making procedure a little again this year, which, combined with what has turned out to be a brilliant year for Riesling, has enabled me to present a wine that I regard as being exceptional.

The intense but soft lime and mandarin fruit characters are supported by what I feel is a superb palate showing great complexity and length of flavour.

As with all the wines that have come from that old vineyard, it will age superbly and easily achieve 10 years of age or more.

Alcohol 12.8%
