100% Riesling from Mt Difficulty's Target Gully and Long Gully vineyards. Historically made from 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.
Fragrant floral notes compete 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.
