Harvested at a very low pH of 2.9 at 12.5 baume. The wine sits seven days on skins after crushing, with free run juice drawn into stainless steel for cool fermentation. The wine is raised 50/50 in stainless and neutral barrels for six months before bottling. Lightly filtered and unfined, the high acid all but masking the 8 grams of residual sugar.
Aromatically enticing with pineapple and nectarines, plus lavender, jasmine and herbal tea notes. On the palate, these impressions continue, carried over a beautifully balanced mouthfeel. Acidity is steely but not at all bracing, with the touch of RS no doubt balancing superbly, it’s a wine with lovely flow and feel. If you’re going to put Riesling in a Burgundy bottle it had better make a stylistic statement which this does, though above all it retains purity and varietal character.
