Old Mate WIne ‘It’s Lit’ Riesling 2017
'Powderbark Ridge vineyard in Frankland River. Fruit had a little botrytis after a wet growing season. Ferment and then maceration on skins for 3 months in qvevri, stirred every couple of weeks to keep skins and solids in suspension, pressed off and into tank for another 5 months of elevage on solids, racked and bottled. A more serious wine IMO, a spectrum of apple on thon the nose, some honeyed characters from the botrytis more linear acidity, and great structure.'
