2017 Organic Late Harvest Riesling
ORGANIC, VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE
“Creating a balanced wine from early winter grapes requires more than just concentration of flavours and sugars - acidity is also key. This organic, late harvest Riesling delivers intense flavours of honey, nectarine and white raisin with a sweetness that is balanced by refreshing acidity.”
Heather Rankin, Wine Align
Late Harvest – starting in 1986, winemaker, Ann Sperling has had a fascination with Late harvest and botrytis affected wines. The concentration, and texture of late harvested wine sets an exciting challenge to make a harmonious and refreshing wine in spite of the obvious intensity. Ideally mature grapes are harvested at 30 brix depending on the season and selection. Acidity is key, so harvest parameters include target acidity of 10 g/L.
