Mitchelton Blackwood Park Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Goulburn Victoria
Mitchelton was originally a grazing property known as Blackwood Park. The soils and microclimate are significantly influenced by the presence of the pristine Goulburn River which surrounds the property on three sides, shaping the unique environment and mesoclime. In turn, geological shifts, ancestral river flows and climate have created distinct soil profiles on individual blocks. Priority is given to monitoring sugar and acid profiles while grapes are ripening, timing of harvest is critical to achieving optimum balance and intensity in the wine.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$251.00
Parcels of Riesling are sourced from several blocks across Mitchelton estate, predominantly duplex red brown earths with friable soft sandy loam topsoil overlying well structured blocky red subsoils. Picking occurs during the early hours of morning in the midst of the cool Goulburn nights. From the crusher, to the press and in to the settling tank, fruit is protected by cooler temperatures and judicious gas coverage, to preserve the fragile aromas and flavours which are so vulnerable once the skins have been broken. Settling is short and cold, racking is clean and gentle in preparation for inoculation to a vigorous neutral yeast strain, ensuring an even, cold fermentation over the course of two to three weeks.
Pale antique gold in colour with green highlights. A delicate yet powerful nose of lifted floral and citrus aromas with a hint of musk. Flavours of freshly cut lemon and lime fill the palate, balanced by crisp acid which ensures the wine will develop superbly in the bottle. Intense citrus and floral flavours are balanced by a clean, mineral acid structure.
