Striking pale straw with green hues, the wine is vibrant and intense with jasmine blossom, lychee, candle wax and honey suckle. The palate is medium bodied with an intense and textural pithy, briny, mouthfeel. Mandarin, lemon grass and white nectarine fruits are balanced by cut lime acidity, driving through to a powerful, long finish.
The fruit was hand-picked from block C and D of our Powderbark vineyard in Frankland River with careful attention to eliminate any bunches with excessive sun exposure. The fruit was whole bunch pressed, lightly settled and then naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks to achieve a vibrant and expressive reflection of the purity of Frankland River Riesling. Following fermentation the wine rested on its lees for four months to both preserve freshness and build texture prior to bottling.
