2014 The Roots 26 Riesling

Region

Eden Valley, South Australia

Winemaking

Riesling grapes were carefully hand-picked during the cool of night then destemmed, crushed and chilled. The free run juice was separated from skins by gentle pressing under inert gas conditions and cold settled at sub 10 degrees C in stainless steel tank. Racking and inoculation with a select yeast culture then followed.  The wine was made from free run juice only, and left on light lees following fermentation so as to develop palate length. The end result is a dry style of Riesling with tremendous balance and vibrancy of flavour.
