The word pazza in Italian is the feminine version of CRAZY and this is a wild fermented, unfiltered Riesling sourced from the dry grown Watervale Peglidis vineyard. This wine is oxidatively handled and fermented in a blend of stainless steel and ten year old French oak barriques for approx. three months. A dry style with its savoury qualities shows that Riesling can indeed come in many different shapes and sizes.
