2016 Mulberry Tree Vineyard Chardonnay– 240 Cases Produced
We had the idea to hold back some of this wine as it is built to age. In its sixth year, it is starting to come into its own and developing complex, rich flavours and textures and showing how well Riesling can develop. It still has many years ahead of it.
Intense, dry, racy and mineral driven Riesling. The 2016 season gave a beautifully aromatic wine showing apples and pears, white flowers and mandarin orange with some baking spice. The palate is crisp, intense and pure with its lemon, lime, peach, green apple and stony and chalky minerality. Bone dry, high acid, powerful intensity, minerality. Wild ferment, neutral oak, lees aging and organic grapes.
