Since the first release in 1984, our Rieslings have achieved something of a local cult status. Driven by a market in search of a “dry” or “trocken” style wine, our 2018 vintage seeks to highlight the purity and complexity of fruit that makes Riesling so individual. Hand-picked at daybreak to ensure only the most heavenly flavours, about 15% of grapes showed the presence of Botrytis. After crushing and de-stemming, the fruit underwent six hours of skin contact at 12 degrees Celcius. After pressing, the juices were fermented using a yeast personally selected by our winemaker in Austria, then stabilised, filtered and bottled.

One of the world’s noble grape varieties. It has the smallest bunches and berries of all white varietals, thereby imparting immense flavour and concentration to the resultant wines. Added to this, is the distinction that few other white varietals are able to mature to their betterment, for decades, like the best global examples of Riesling are able to.
