Details

"A riesling that is both textural and delicate. The 2019 is expressive and more overt than other years, with wonderful flavours. The grapes were hand picked. Half were whole bunch pressed and half were crushed and pressed. Each fermented seperately. The iwne was blended and spent four months on lees prior to bottling."

"Riesling wasn't on the front burner when Shaw + Smith set up business, its Sauvignon Blanc the cash cow funding other less popular varieties. Hand-picked, 50% whole-bunch pressed, 50% crushed, each fermented separately, blended and bottled after 4 months. The small crop meant the wine is intense and powerful, fine yet textured."
