2018 RAW Riesling
Appellation: Creek Shores
R.S.: <3 g/l
T.A.: 5.6 g/l
Source: Dim Vineyards – Creek Shores
Winemaker’s Notes: The bulk of the fruit was very clean and fresh. We were fortunate enough to have about 30% be botrytis affected which gave the wine more character and flavour. We whole cluster, carbonic fermented for 10 days then pressed and finished fermenting for 6 months. It was then aged another 2 months in a 2000L concrete tank.
Sommelier's Notes: This is a weird Riesling. The carbonic maceration might have something to do with is. Highly aromatic, floral, and unique. The aromas are of bergamot, apricot, lilies, and cardamom. The palate is dry, with a hint of tannin and fresh acidity
