2019 Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Riesling

2019 Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Riesling

SKU: FWC1

Growing grapes, hunting for our table and raising a farm all help our family to truly understand this land. Inspired by Matt Fowles’ passion for hunting and gathering, our Ladies who Shoot their Lunch wines have been crafted to complement the textures and flavours of wild food. Vibrant in colour, intensely aromatic and fine in texture with pristine fruit flavours, these wines are a window into the wild for the curious, instinctive, perceptive and discerning.

 

  • Vintage Conditions

    2019 was another hot dry year. Yields were low. With the hot conditions the Riesling skins developed more colour then normally and this can be seen in the resulting wine. The old vines at Lake View only had a tiny crop so this wine is a 50/50 blend of Lake View and Upton Run.

  • Wine Making

    The grapes were destemmed and crushed gently with open rollers prior to fermentation to minimise phenolic extraction to help create a more delicate wine. Old world juice handling techniques including fermentation on solids were employed to add texture and complexity. This wine was fermented in large oak cask between 18-20°Celsius. The wine was kept on yeast lees for about 12 weeks to build body and texture into the wine. We chose to wild ferment this wine to add greater complexity and funk.

  • Color, Nose and Palate

    Pale straw in color. Lychee, citrus blossom, pink lady apples and some savoury complexity. A sophisticated and complex combination of citrus cumquat, lime, and lychee with a clean, crisp finish
