Mt Difficulty Bannockburn Dry Riesling 2017 - 12 Bottles

$275.00

 VINTAGE 2017 - 12 bottles

WINEMAKING CONSIDERATIONS:

Our Dry Riesling attempts to balance flavour and palate weight with the wine’s natural acidity.  The 2017 was back to a cooler vintage and a later picking window. The majority of the fruit for this wine came off our Full Circle vineyard on the 16th April and the balance on the 29th April from our Swansong vineyard. It was carefully hand-harvested and processed through the winery – the wine was whole bunch pressed and fermented on full solids to help enhance palate weight. The wine was fermented relatively warm in stainless steel, using indigenous yeast to retain maximum varietal expression. The wine was fermented slowly to dryness, and then rested unstirred on its gross yeast lees; trying to build texture but not flavour. The wine stayed on gross lees for ten months and was then filtered and stabilised for bottling in February.
