Overview

This Single Vineyard Half Dry Riesling was handpicked in the early morning from the bottom half of our Riesling block and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation was cool and slow, with the ferment being stopped at 15 grams residual sugar. The wine was left in tank on lees for a further 4 months, stirring occasionally for further palate texture.

Expert Reviews

“94/100 The Wine Reviewer, Oct 2018 Jacob Stein is producing some exceptional resiling, with the half dry style one that is hard to get right; but is nailed on this occasion. The nose enjoys concentrated notes of jasmine, mandarin zest and fresh limes against a backdrop of slate. The decision to leave 15g residual sugar has created a wine that has a mere suggestion of sweetness when contrasted with the energetic swathes of acidity that defines it. Lime dominates with some candied apple like characters from residual sugar on the mid palate, with the interplay of acid and fruit giving a chalky and mineral character to finish.”

92/100 Huon Hooke, Nov 2018 Pale-yellow colour and a lovely floral aroma, open and fresh and charming. The wine is juicy and fruity, soft and refreshingly lively on the tongue, the sweetness and acidity well-poised and harmonious. Delicious wine. This will reward a bit of cellar time.”

Winery Tasting Notes

This wine has some great potential for many reasons. It was very floral and fragrant during ferment, and has finished up very nicely. We left a touch more residual sugar than normal in this vintage, to ensure it stays within the half-dry category. Once again showing those great lemon/lime citrus characters, with a nice pop of fruit which is balanced out nicely by the crisp, clean acidity.
