2021 Ravensworth Estate Riesling13950
WINEMAKER: Bryan Martin
REGION: Murrumbateman, NSW
All the fruit was whole bunch pressed to ceramic eggs, so lots of solids, a wild ferment took place in its usual mysterious way, about three weeks later the eggs were topped and then just left alone for 10 months when they were all brought together in a 20hl (2,000l) Austrian grown foudre, after another year they were bottled without filtration or fining.
A lot going on here, mineral, flowers, quiet spicy, a little white peach, citrus. The palate is the feature, very dry but with loads of fine texture, again a presence of minerality, citrus peel, and persistence.
