Welschriesling- NOT to be confused with German Riesling grapes…! A late ripening varietal with banging acidity & gentle aromatics that’s awesomely versatile & undeniably delicious. These particular Welshriesling grapes are harvested from 55 years old vines so the roots are buried deep into the ground producing epic minerality. After de-stemming & crushing the fermentation occurred in contact with the skins to extract flavour & texture, creating a lush grippy mouth sensation. On the nose there’s white peach & a hint of pomelo peel before the palate takes over with citrusy fresh apple vibes for days. Aged for 8 months in Slovak oak on fine lees for a final rounding out & balancing. She’s a beaut!
