Vinification: Our Riesling is 100% from our own vineyard and the vines are the oldest commercial vines in New Zealand’s South Island. The grapes were machine harvested on April 29th 2013. Fermentation was undertaken under controlled circumstances in stainless steel tanks and a slow ferment was maintained using our wineries extensive cooling system which enabled us to retain the citrus fruit flavour in the wine. Following a six week fermentation period the wine was then left on its gross lees for a further eight months and was then bottled as one batch on 27th March 2014
