Pressing Matters R9 Riesling 2015

Pressing Matters R9 Riesling 2015

Inspired by the traditional Mosel style but designed to reflect and optimize the outstanding characteristics that Tasmanian Rieslings are capable of producing. The Riesling clones have been planted on their own roots - a density of 5000 vines per hectare.  The clones are D2V3, 198GM, F8V13 and 239GM. As already noted, yields are very low (the highest to date being 6 tonnes per hectare) and wines are now being produced with 4 levels of residual sugar (or levels of sweetness).  The approximate levels of residual sugar are reflected in the labeling - This is the R9 which is the measurement for the dry style- compared to the others which are measured as bone-dry, medium-sweet and sweet. The R9 has a bright green straw with citrus blossom and slight passionfruit bouquet. An elegant palate with a fleshy mouth-feel but pure lime juice balanced with a fine acid line. This Riesling is significantly lower in alcohol than most Australian Rieslings and the intense fruit flavours are balanced with natural acidity.

Pressing Matters

Sydney-siders Greg Melick and Francis Douglas, both wine-loving Barristers, had been interested in establishing a vineyard for many years. In 2002 Greg finally found the ideal site in the Coal River Valley which consisted of approximately 14 hectares of grazing land on well-drained, north east facing slopes, with cracking clay over a calciferous base. The name Pressing Matters is a metaphorical representation of the Vaslin Bucher basket press style and the lawful background of its founders. The label was designed by contemporary Czech artist Tom Samek- now based in Hobart Tasmania, symbolically capturing the balance of these wines and their establishment. Greg has been a passionate consumer of wine involved with wine judging both nationally and internationally for nearly 20 years. His two favourite wine growing areas are Burgundy and Mosel; Hence, the vineyard has only been planted with the two ‘Noble’ varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir.
