Overview

Specialising in cool climate wine, Delatite’s winery and vineyards are on rolling hills at the base of Mt Buller in north-east Victoria. It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Our approach to winemaking has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years. We’re committed to producing outstanding wines and to biodynamic principles that leave the environment in a better state than when we started. The fruit was hand-picked in late March and early April, whole bunch pressed and allowed to briefly settle. This removes the heavy solids from the juice, whilst retaining many of the lighter solids that are a wonderful source of nutrient for the yeast.

A small portion of the wine was fermented in large old oak puncheons to add some further complexity to the wine. All of the juice was fermented by our natural wild yeasts and then racked off its lees at the end of fermentation. The wine was prepared for bottling without any further ‘manipulation’, other than filtration to retain the pristine character of our delicate Riesling.
