2016 Riesling Beerenauslese

2016 Riesling Beerenauslese
2016 Riesling Beerenauslese

Estate Grown, Produced and Bottled

Grown from grapes at Crain Hill Vineyard, Block 2

Tasting notes

Medium gold. Aromatics include coconut milk, pineapple juice, honey, nectar and powdered sugar. Tastes like sweet bread orange cake and syrupy like agave. Up front flavors with mellow acid.

Production notes

Picked the same time as the Auslese but passed and saved for final pick as this sorted the fruit in the vineyard. Destemmed, crushed and sent to the basket press. Our very first wine totally fermented on the wild yeast. We see this becoming a pattern as the finished wine is of highest quality. Spent six months with fine lees before prep for bottling.
