2019 Cordon Cut Riesling – SOLD OUT
500 CASES PRODUCED
This is the 27th vintage, with production a mere 500 dozen due to seasonal conditions. Made by a complex, highly risky process requiring both skill and experience, the underlying principle is that the vine canes are completely severed, and the grape bunches are left to shrivel, like raisins, on the vine. The decision to pick is made by Stephanie not based on analysis but rather by appearance and taste of the fruit, and her intimate knowledge of the process.
Pale white gold.
Effusively fragrant floral and ripe citrus tones. The very definition of perfumed. A very elegant release of Cordon Cut: delicate, yet intense and with incredible length of flavour. Juicy ripe lemons and limes with vibrant acidity balancing the sugar intensity. Long on flavour, the refreshing acid structure rounding out what is a terrific release that will continue to build further with time in bottle. Minimum ten year cellaring potential..
Tyson Stelzer, WBM Magazine – 96 Points
Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review “…lush and very sweet with good depth, tangy acid balance…”
