Mt Difficulty Target Riesling 2014


100% Riesling from the Target Gully and Long Gully vineyards in Central Otago. Historically made from only one vineyard, but its medium style is best achieved by blending from both.

Hand harvested fruit was carefully processed through the winery. The juice was cold settled for 14 days prior to racking for fermentation to further enhance palate weight. Fermented cool in stainless steel to retain maximum varietal expression; fermentation stopped by chilling to balance the natural acidity with residual sugar.

Winemaker's Comments

Fragrant floral notes with stone-fruit and a hint of citrus in the aroma of this Riesling. Clean focused citrus characters introduce this wine to the palate with a lovely stone-fruit note adding complexity. A moderate amount of residual sugar has been retained to balance the clean acidity, which has also fleshed out the mid-palate nicely.
