Vintage Description
Technical Details

Having identified St Matthias vineyard as mainly producing Riesling that has more intense tropical fruit characters that are better suited for earlier drinking, we have continued to make it as a traditional method sparkling wine. With a target of six to eight months on lees, we aim to have the wine on lees just long enough to provide mouthfeel rather than any obvious autolytic characters. Hence, with only this small amount of time, the wine has remained very aromatic with lots of forward fruit. It’s one of our few wines with some residual sugar and is a great aperitif with or without food.

The spice, baked apple and marmalade intensity of Tasmania riesling contrasts the high-tensile lime juice cut of searing acidity, making for a tense and firm style of grand complexity. Halliday Wine Companion 2018, August 1 2017, by Tyson Stelzer
