Domain Road Duffers Creek Riesling 2016

$26.00 $23.40

An off-dry style fermented cool in stainless steel tank after gentle whole bunch pressing.  Lifted aromas of melon and citrus fruit with honey and lemon on the nose.  A small amount of residual sweetness is well balanced and allows subtle flavours of lime and ginger on the palate.

Description

A 10-million year old lake bed provides the mineral-rich ‘pipe clay’ soil on which the Riesling vines thrive. Exposed by 19th century gold miners working in the valleys around Bannockburn, the unique soil combines with the micro-climate to provide perfect grape growing conditions. The wine takes its name from a small creek tucked away in the Bannockburn hills which flows down into the valley. An old stone cottage surrounded by towering poplars gives a glimpse of life as it was lived in gold-fever times. Nowadays, the cottage has been renovated and has provided the backdrop to many happy family camping holidays.

Hand harvested the fruit was de-stemmed and crushed before pressing and undergoing fermentation in a stainless steel fermenter.  The fermentation was stopped to retain around 20g/L residual sugar.
