2017 Leaf Series Riesling

vintage

2017 vintage started late, two to three weeks later than the preceding couple of years. Early ripening varieties were harvested at the end of February through the first half of March. The reason for this was the mild, cool spring weather experienced all across the southern part of the state. This can be quite beneficial as cool ripening conditions helps maintain the fresh, bright aromas of these white varieties and reduced alcohol levels.

winemaking

Select parcels of Great Southern Riesling have been fermented cool and slow in stainless steel to retain the purity of the aromatics.

tasting comments

Lime, lemon zest, and spice aromas with a finely textured and tightly structured palate, finishing with delicate and long acidity.
