‘This wine teeters on the brink between ‘dry’ and ‘off dry’, but simply put it’s just superbly balanced in terms of acid and fruit and residual sugar. A Riesling with natural acid (2.87 PH) and with only 9.1 grams residual it’s an absolute pleasure of a wine that showcases the potential of the Coal River for this variety. Sourced from her own vines in Tea Tree subregion of Coal River, planted in 2004 at a vineyard density 5000 vines per hectare.
Hand picked, destemmed and left on skins for 8 hours before being pressed off to both tank and seasoned barrel (25%) for fermentation. Samantha stopped the tank ferment 2 months post picking and then lees for 3 months, stirring fortnightly.’ – Distributor’s note
