Gold Medal Winner at Intervin International Wine Awards 2019

Blend
100% Riesling

Block 3 is one of our favourite blocks because of its age (planted in 1991) and the interesting flavour profiles it can display. The block was harvested using a “three pick” approach, and the second and third picks were reserved for this Platinum wine. The extended hang time allowed the grapes more time to develop sugars, flavour profile, and acidity, while the cool growing season helped retain that vibrant acidity. Half of this wine was wild fermented, and the other half was fermented with organic yeast. The six months on lees in tank bolstered its complexity.
