2022 R0 Riesling
The wine has a light straw colour with hints of green, typical of young crispy riesling. Complex aromas with notes of preserved lime, dried rose petals, and pear. There is also a hint of Cox's orange crunch. The palate is clean and refreshing, with a vibrant acidity and a citrus fruit. The wine has a long finish, with flavors that linger on the palate.
Pale with green tinges. On the nose, preserved lime, dried rose petal and pear. A Cox’s orange crunch. Clean and clear palate; vibrant and juicy with great length.
After selective picking, the fruit is gently bag pressed and cold settled for 48 hours. Post racking, the juice is inoculated with a neutral yeast and fermented at cool temperatures for around three weeks. After the fermentation the wine spends around 6-8 weeks on lees before being prepared for bottling.
The 2022 Tasmanian vintage was a modest one, like 2021 but with better and higher yields than 2020. A warm and dry spring was followed by a significant amount of rainfall towards the end of summer. Despite this, it was an overall good year, with exceptional fruit grown across the Coal River Valley.
