Blend
100% Block 3 Riesling

We've adopted a "two-pick" approach to our Riesling in Block 3.  The second pick gets a few weeks of additional hang time to develop in the vineyard and is then harvested for our Platinum Riesling.  Until 2016.  This time the first pick - normally destined for our Estate tier - felt stylistically more like Platinum fruit with is bright, fresh flavours & vibrant acidity.  We wild fermented 10% of it in French oak to provide a little extra texture and mouth feel to compliment the lifted, floral complexity on the nose.
