2016 Arfion Snowflake Riesling - $65


There aren't many Riesling vineyards in the Yarra. I was lucky enough to get a small block from the ironstone soils of the Rising Vineyard, where I get my Gewurztraminer from. 

Because it is so different, there was no point in trying to emulate a Tassie or Clare version of the variety. Yarra whites are all about texture and versatility so I needed to follow that direction. 

7 days of wild fermentation on wholeberry skins.

Pressed to old barriques. 

Full malolactic ferment. 

No filtration or fining.

Just 350 Magnums produced. 

Exotic ginger, lemon barley and spice. Dry with more texture and weight than a usual Aussie Riesling it has a nice slightly tannic finish.
