Specialising in cool climate wine, Delatite’s winery and vineyards are on rolling hills at the base of Mt Buller in north-east Victoria. It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Their winemaking approach has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years. Delatite are committed to producing outstanding wines and to biodynamic principles that leave the environment in a better state than when they started.
Owing to its cool climate and sub alpine location in the High Country, Delatite’s wines are European in structure and complexity. They’re great with food and will also age beautifully for 10- 15 years.
This fruit was hand -picked and whole-bunch pressed to tank before being allowed to warm up and begin fermentation naturally. During fermentation 20% of the wine was transferred to old French oak puncheons to and then matured in this oak for 9 months prior to being blended back.
Our 2016 Riesling has a tight nose of lemon and lime characters with a palate that offers zesty lemon flavours which combines well with the fresh acidity of the wine. The finish is long and offers some floral characters on the back palate.
