Cold Pressed Riesling
Description

The riesling from this valley floor vineyard is hand harvested when it has achieved optimal flavour ripeness. It is then transported to a cold storage facility and is snap frozen at -18 degrees Celsius and returned to the winery for pressing towards the end of vintage when the weather has cooled and autumn is in full swing. The frozen grapes are loaded into one of our presses where we slowly and gently press out a beautifully pure and sweet juice. The freezing process traps the majority of the water in the berry as ice, allowing the sugar, acid and flavour to be concentrated into a rich and clear syrup like juice, which is gently extracted over a period of around 5 days. After the pressing process, the grapes remain frozen in the press but there is very little flavour and sugar left, just ice and skins.
The resulting juice is then fermented in a stainless steel tank using an aromatically neutral, yet hardy wine making yeast to slowly convert the sugars to alcohol at low temperatures. Once the ferment has achieved a sufficient, yet low alcohol content, the active yeast is arrested using the tanks cooling system.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Soft yellow gold
Nose
Bright lemon curd and lime zest spice with candied orange peel.
Palate
Palate: Floral nuances and spicy candies interplay with musky lemon and orange marmalade fruit. Luscious and upfront, the sweet sugary richness is kept in balance by a racy line of acid, which carries through to a long finish

My husband and I absolutely loved this wine and are completely devastated it’s sold out. Would be awesome if your current Riesling was available to purchase online as well as your incredible fortified Shiraz. We would be very happy vip’s
