Locharburn Riesling 2013

$26.00 $23.40

Pure, pristine and delightful, the bouquet shows floral, lemon zest, stone fruit and a hint of flinty notes. Off-dry to taste, bold and up-front flavours of lemon and lime burst on the palate, showing depth and concentration, leading to a fabulous, mouth-watering nutty and mineral finish.

We maintain two cordons per vine, spur pruned to limit bud numbers, manage crop loads and maintain quality. Post-verasion fruit thinning is also employed with leaf plucking around the bunch zone to assist with ripening and increase the flavours.

The fruit was hand-picked and then whole-bunch pressed and settled overnight before it was fermented at 15 to 17° C to retain its freshness and intensity. After three weeks fermentation, the wine was held on fine yeast lees for two months to add richness and complexity. Once the yeast lees settled out, the wine was racked and prepared for bottling.
