From mature sites at Lenswood and Mt Torrens, off vines up to forty years old. The Wirra Wirra team intervene as little as possible in the magic of fruit evolving into wine, placing their faith in the management of vineyards and blessings of nature. Grapes are selectively hand picked to avoid any sun damaged berries, to minimize skin contact and retain delicate aromatics. Bunches are crushed and de-stemmed through a membrane press. Solids are separated, the free run juices are clarified and transferred into fermenters for inoculation with either QA23, Anchor VIN 13 or PDM yeasts, followed by several weeks vinification at cooler temperatures to maximize purity of Adelaide Hills fruit character.
Brilliant pale straw, green hues. A lifted bouquet with classic talc, perfumed floral notes and a citrus zest. Displaying an intense core of ripe citrus throughout the palate with persistent flavour and a minerally structure offset by a hint of brown lime. Refreshing acidity persists providing a beguiling mouth feel and a long finish. This wonderfully pristine and classic dry style Australian Riesling can be fully appreciated in its youth.
