Vintage Conditions

2015 Vintage was almost certainly the earliest and shortest on record, both yields and quality have been above average in most circumstances. A dry and mild spring lead into a mild early summer and it wasn't until February that 'normal' summer conditions really emerged. A very welcome 75mm of rain was received in the second week of January, and this certainly assisted in filling out berry size and maintaining good canopy and leaf condition which in turn really helped bring the vintage to a better-than-expected conclusion.

"It's hard to imagine a more distinctive Riesling. There's a softness to it's presentation of citrus and grapefruit-like flavour. You don't just drink this wine; you engage in a staring contest with it. It's incredibly dry and yet it drips with flavour. It's enough to make you marvel."
