Bannockburn Riesling 2015

Regular price $28.00
2015 is winemaker Matt Holmes' first vintage at Bannockburn, and we're delighted to have the Bannockburn Riesling back on the menu after a brief hiatus. Bannockburn Riesling is made from a single acre plot of Riesling vines dry-grown on the Olive Tree Hill vineyard, which was planted in 1978. In 2015, Matt left about 1/4 of the grapes on skins overnight before pressing; the remaining portion of fruit went straight to the air bag press. The combined juices were then settled, racked and transferred to tank for fermentation. Bottled after 6 months.

Matt's tasting note: "Lime and grapefruit anchor a complex nose. The acid is approachable but cleansing with weight enhanced by phenolics from the skins. Citrus notes again on the palate, also chalk, minerals, talc and spiced tea flavours."
