The Gibbston Valley Collection Riesling is crafted from grapes from the Red Shed vineyard located in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago.
The Riesling is picked relatively early in order to preserve its citrusy, mineral core. In the vineyard the fruit is gently exposed with a light leaf pluck, and picked when there is colour and flavour development. It has a simple winery regime: following whole bunch pressing, pressings are treated oxidatively, fined, then blended back with the free run juice. The wine is cool fermented, then bottled. This produces a very intense, steely wine with pure flavours through the aromatics and the palate with a cleansing citrusy succulance that kicks though into an extraordinary length of flavour, finishes dry.
Cellaring: The Gibbston Valley Collection Riesling is structured for enjoyment when released or aging for up to 10 years in your cellar.
