Viticulture: On a north facing bank of the Derwent River this 21-year-old cool-climate vineyard in Southern Tasmania has its riesling block on the uppermost slope. The soils are shallow, permeable loams over limestone that allow this variety to develop intensity and definition while retaining delicacy.

Winemaking: Hand picked then pressed under inert gas. The juice is filtered and fermenting within 24hrs of harvest, without being chilled or reheated. The fermentation takes place using cultured yeast at extremely cool temperatures, below 9 degrees C, over 30-35 days. The wine is stabilised, lightly fined, filtered and bottled. All within 90 days from harvest.
