This cane cut dessert style wine is the result of the winemaker's aim to produce a wine with a point of difference, and the need to adapt to the characteristics of Margaret River where weather conditions are usually not optimum for good botrytis to develop.
This wine is made from the Estate Riesling vines planted in 1973; the fruit-bearing canes were cut when the flavours in the grapes were at their optimum. The bunches were then left out hanging on the vines to dehydrate for about 3 weeks, thus concentrating the sugar (17.0 Be°), acid and flavour.
