2019 'Only in Dreams' Riesling
Inspired by Weezer "Only in Dreams"
Why, we hear you ask? Well we thought a white would never eventuate in 2019 with the first parcel of fruit eaten by sheep and the second by birds. Thankfully we were rescued by a grower in Manjimup who offered us a parcel of Riesling late in the piece . The fruit was destemmed and left to cold soak for just over 3 days as we wanted to build the texture. As soon as it showed signs of ferment we pressed it off as we didn't want to make an orange wine. It underwent wild ferment in tank, then sat on lees in old barrels until ready for bottling.
Aromas of lemon, pear drops, underripe peach, chamomile and hints of floral with secondary characters of candied lime and honey developing. The palate carries through with fresh squeezed lime juice, fresh apricot and dried ginger. Shows minerality and a creamy texture.
