Ein Riese Riesling

None excites Ben more than old-world style Riesling. In this vein, we continue the twenty second vintage of his silky smooth Adelaide Hills gem 'Ein Riese'. German for "a giant", and a perfect name for a giant, German style Riesling which is perhaps Bens favourite creation; crisp, sweet and fresh.

Made as an off-dry German Style Riesling, the grapes were handpicked and whole bunch pressed. The grapes were harvested early to ensure that the resultant juice was low in phenolics. The juice was cold-settled though left a little cloudy – this left some solids for the fermentation process to enhance complexity and texture. Fermentation was continued until a perfect balance between alcohol, acid, sugar and flavour was reached, at which point the wine was chilled to halt fermentation. After clarifying, the wine was bottled and released. It almost makes itself!
