Dicey Bannockburn Central Otago Riesling 2021 750ML

An unsettled spring meant a slow start to grow. After some warmer temps in mid-November the inclement weather — including some low snowfall — continued into flowering. The vines are set with small berries on compact bunches. There was a good amount of rain in January, then it dried out and heated up. Some screaming windstorms visited over Easter but we got through without damage. We brought the crop in at optimal ripeness. The fruit was disease-free and delicious. Overall the season was warmer than normal, and the yields were lower.  

Winemaker’s Notes

The fruit was harvested midseason. The whole bunch pressed to tank. Settled for 10 days, racked with light lees for ferment. Indigenous yeast fermentation stopped with ~30g/L natural residual sugar. Bottled unfined, filtered July 2021.

ABV: 10.5%
