The Moppity winemaking team make every effort in the vineyard to promote the quality of fruit. Minimal irrigation, bunch thinning and careful pruning ensure low yields of highly concentrated grapes, to achieve wines of great flavour intensity and regional varietal distinction. The Hilltops climate is cool to moderate and summer rainfall is low, a long, even ripening period supports flavour and colour development, underpinning the intensity of the wines. Parcels of single vineyard, estate grown Riesling grapes are crushed, before batches of exclusively free run juices are separated and treated to a temperature controlled cold fermentation and early bottling to capture and preserve the vital Riesling characters.
Pale straw colour. Highly aromatic style with exotic spicy notes and ripe limes. Fine, crisp and well balanced, making for an elegant wine with good persistence. The generous fruit is well tempered by fine, clean, bracing acidity, the palate is long and racy, culminating on a clean, zippy finish. Excellent and will continue to develop complex honey and toast characters. Enjoy with the freshest seafood or delicate white meats.
