About: After much anticipation, the 2017 Hilltops Riesling’s have been released, and look to rival the success and popularity of the 2016’s; producing wines with delicacy and vibrancy.
Viticulture: Careful canopy management to protect the fruit from excessive sunlight. Hand-picked (from low yielding 40 year old vines) at 10.5 Baume.
Wine making: Whole bunch pressed, 100% free run juice & cold fermented.
Tasting Notes: The palate shows good breadth and depth of flavour with delicate citrus fruits threaded by chalk and minerals. Delicate yet powerful, the palate is lifted by a line of squeaky clean acidity, that carries the flavours onto a long refreshing finish.
