Winemaker's Notes - The fruit was clean and an estimated 20% was botrytis affected. Fresh whole cluster carbonic maceration for 7 days in stainless tank and then we pressed into a 2000L concrete vessel. Alcoholic fermentation finished in concrete after 3 months and then spent an additional 9 months aging in same.

Sommelier's Notes - 
Another weirdo. The nose is ripe, tropical, complex, and mind-bending for a Riesling. This is not what you normally expect from this grape. Fresh mango, pineapple, starfruit, and pomelo (google it). The palate is dry, yet juicy, with a slight coarse texture from the carbonic skin contact. The acidity is high, and probably the only thing that ties this to typical Riesling character, carrying the flavours a long way with it. I would love some mildly exotic foods like Phad Thai or coconut shrimp with this. (JL-Aug. 2022)
