2016 Vin de Glaciére Riesling
Canberra International Riesling Challenge - 96 points!!! Elite Gold.
Our 2016 Vin de Glaciere grew and was harvested in a warm year that offered tropical fruit aromatics of mango and pineapple. The grapes were picked in late September at 22 Brix and pressed after being frozen, which concentrated the sugar to 35 Brix. The fermentation was arrested at 178 g/L with 10.5% acquired alcohol producing a refreshing style. One hundred percent fermented and aged in stainless steel, preserved the fruit intensity. A great affordable "ice wine" style wine!
