2018 Riesling

2018 Riesling


Rowanston On The Track

Our award-winning Riesling is a refreshing, dry, clean wine true to its variety. It is wonderfully refreshing and acidic to drink when new and also has wonderful aging potential. This Riesling has lovely intense aromas of lime and lemon zest with lingering flavours of white nectarine and crisp apple.

"Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, cultured yeast, cool-fermented in stainless steel. this is an embryonic wine, everything tuned down by the use of whole bunch pressing. All it needs to transform itself is time." Halliday

Technical Information

The Riesling was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, and fermented in a stainless steel tank.

The 2018 Vintage season had average winter and spring rain, then a wet January (twice average) that required strict disease control. February was dry and, through to the end of vintage, had perfect sunny weather (no sunburn issues).
