Peppertree 2019 Riesling

Peppertree 2019 Riesling

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS

Our vineyard is situated on the volcanic slopes of Mt Canobolas in the Orange region at an altitude of 800 metres.  After a very cold winter the weather quickly warmed up and the summer was quite hot and dry by Orange standards. Several fortuitous rain events localised around Mt Canobolas helped our dam and bore supplies to give us enough moisture to produce 'normal' crop levels and canopies throughout the growing season.

 

THE WINEMAKING

Due to the overall dry conditions all fruit was picked in good, disease free condition. The fruit was hand-picked at first light and then whole bunch pressed and settled bright before being inoculated for ferment. The resulting wine was then settled, lightly fined and prepared for bottling.

 

TASTING NOTES

This Riesling is a made in a dry aromatic style with a perfumed nose of lime and orange blossoms that only a cool climate vineyard can achieve. The palate displays intense juicy citrus characters and a long, refined finish. Enjoy this wine now or cellar for further complexity.
