Overview

A small portion of the wine was fermented in large old oak vessels 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.

Expert Reviews

Rating 91 James Halliday Published 01 August 2017

The combination of wild yeast and part fermentation in used hogsheads are contributors to a riesling with considerable presence and appeal; the flavour cornerstones are lime and Meyer lemon, the mouthfeel relatively (but pleasantly) soft. Nice wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

The nose of this wine shows lovely delicate floral aromatics that are typical of all Delatite Rieslings whilst the palate has layers of lemon rind and lemon blossom with fine talcy structure and a fresh acid finish.

This wine can be drunk in its youth, but like all great Rieslings, it will age easily for ten years. Should be wonderful for up to twenty years, developing fabulous toasty honey characters, that Riesling is famous for.
