100% Riesling sourced from from Block 2 of The Elms vineyard in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago.
Fruit was hand-picked then carefully whole bunch pressed, followed by a long slow fermentation of 10 weeks with indigenous yeasts to almost complete dryness. The wine rested on fine lees to build palate weight, with minimal processing to highlight the delicate characters before bottling.
Opens with delicate perfumes of apple blossom and talc over an underlying platform of stony minerality. Elegant fruit flavours dance their way through complexing nuances of cardamom and fenugreek, while the chalky-dry finish is broad and textural with considerable persistence. A classic and detailed dry Riesling.
