The Riesling grapes are sourced from vineyard sites near the village of Kasel in the Ruwer valley - characterised by loose slate soils. They are hand-picked, undergo selection, and then are fermented in small stainless steel tanks. The wine rests for a few months on its fine lees, before bottling the spring following the harvest.
Vibrant aromas of stone fruit and ripe citrus with a bright and zesty palate of lime and grapefruit notes supported by a good mineral backbone and lengthy finish. Has the potential to age over several years.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
One of my favourite white discoveries of last year; crisp, fresh and elegant with classic varietal character and a mouthwatering finish. - Chris Connolly
