Riesling

Pressing Matters’ Rieslings are inspired by the Mosel styles but reflect the outstanding characteristics that Tasmanian Rieslings are capable of producing.

Clones have been planted on their own roots and at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare. The clones are D2V3, 198GM, F8V13 and 239GM.

Wines are now being produced with 4 levels of residual sugar (or levels of sweetness) which is reflected in the labeling:

  • R0 (very dry)
  • R9 (dry),
  • R69 (medium sweet) and
  • R139 (sweet).

Our wines are also significantly lower in alcohol than most Australian Rieslings and the intense fruit flavours are balanced with natural acidity.

2020 R69 Riesling

After another dry winter in Southern Tasmania, budburst commenced around the middle of September. Relentlessly windy and cold conditions over spring and through to summer saw delayed shoot growth and a challenging flowering period. The end result—open canopies and lower-than-average yields—allayed much of the handwork we do in the vineyard in a normal season. Every month of the growing season…
