The fruit for this wine possesses great complexity, depth and all round deliciousness. Following some skin contact the fruit was basket pressed and the juice fermented to dry at a cool temperature to retain its delicate aromatics. The wine was then left for a time in contact with the lees to build texture and weight. It shows a complex palate of jasmine and tea tree blossom, backed up with zesty lime, apricot and white peach, while the natural acidity ties together a long and lip-smacking finish. 3 grams of natural residual sugar left behind just takes the edge off and makes this an exciting style with a touch of juiciness.
Wellington & Wolfe
Wellington & Wolfe began with the 2017 vintage and is dedicated to producing dry Riesling that is unique and expressive solely of Tasmania. We source fruit from around the north of the state, mainly Pipers River and the Tamar Valley, with a view to crafting wine that is delicate, complex and powerful; all in one. Production is small and our Riesling is made by hand, from grape to glass. 100% Riesling, 100% Tasmania.
