2015 Homestead Dry Riesling

from 20.00

Refreshing aromas of ripe apricot and perfumed elderflower combine with a subtle undercurrent of fresh bush honey gives this wine an enticing nose. The apricot notes follow through and are accompanied by crisp apple on the palate, with a lingering hint of warm summer florals. A clean mineral acidity gives the wine beautiful poise and an elegant lingering finish. Drinking well now but will reward from several years of careful cellaring.

OVERVIEW

The combination of mature vines with the stony free-draining silt loam soils, are the foundations of the underlying minerality and intense aromatics this vineyard is known for.


HARVEST

Growing season 2015 will be one that will be remembered for years to come. Sunny, warm weather graced the region and our vineyards during all critical growth stages and carried on right through vintage till late April.

Fruit for this wine was harvested on the 4th of April from the Homestead vineyard. Due to lower crop loads we were able to hand harvest the fruit at full maturity and with outstanding purity, concentration and intensity.
