La Vierge Last Temptation Riesling 2014
Harvested early in the morning and de-stemmed and crushed at cold temperatures with dry ice to prevent oxidation of the must and preserve aromas and flavours. Skin contact for 3 hours at 10°C and then lightly pressed and left to settle for 72 hours at 2°C. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 13°C to 17°C with further ageing in tank, on lees, for 8 months with lees stirring. High elevation vines provide the fruit for this Riesling giving racy acidity with chiselled melon and terpene perfume and textured body with a lean, bone dry style.
