2015 Storm Haven Vineyard ‘Gibson Block’ Riesling

This wine is the first in a series of experiments with extended lees aging of Riesling from our home vineyard.  To start with, the grapes were hung out at the end of the season significantly later than our other blocks.  The resulting flavours and aromatics were very intense yet with strong acidity still holding.  After a gentle press, the wine was fermented and left on lees with no sulphur for 9 months.  Initially the fermentation stopped with a more off-dry profile but after 2 months it restarted and fermented dry. The extended lees aging and further bottle aging has allowed the acidity in this wine to soften and create a beautiful textured feel.
A crunchy caramel aroma compliments the lime tinged tropical fruit bursting from this wine. The finish is dry but fleshy and textured, carrying on for minutes in the mouth.  This wine will continue to age well but is drinking beautifully now.
