Hand harvested from a specific plot in the "back" old vines which is spur pruned. This fruit reaches good maturity earlier than anywhere on the estate, meaning it is also more susceptible to botrytis infection earlier too. Riper clean fruit than for the Select Riesling, and about 10% botrytis also tolerated in this pass. Bunch pressed. 60% fermented in stainless tanks with temperature control, remainder fermented spontaneously in used acacia barrels (30%) and stainless barrels (10%). Alcohol 9.5% RS 71g/l.
