2016 Old Vines Riesling
VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE
“I’m in right from go - clear tertiary development shows up alongside fleshy apple, pips and lime zest. The palate doesn’t dissapoint, showing an obvious pedigree of acids gliding alongside deft residual sweetness. Finishes long and textural in that way only Riesling can.” 92 pts

Old Vines Riesling: the jewel; our flagship. Not released until 2 years in the bottle has past. Most years, harvested at 20.5 to 21.5 brix and 10 g/L acidity. Fruit hand-harvested cool in late-fall, then bunch sorted and destemmed with a 4-6 hour cold soak before gentle pressing. Slightly settled juice is fermented cool with non-aromatic and wild yeast in stainless steel to desired dryness when fermentation is halted.
