2017 Architects of Wine Riesling
Notes from Dave, the winemaker..: This is our 5th release of this wine and one that remains one of our most popular. The long late vintage in 2017 meant that it was our latest Riesling pick so far on 11th March! The same treatment as 2016 - 14 days macerating on skins and lightly hand plunged only once per day, pressed to stainless steel and left on its fermentation lees right up until bottling. This later vintage has provided us with a wine with a bit less of that razor-like acidity and something that is a bit easier drinking. Light golden in colour, lemon, citrus pith, tropical fruit - melons & a hint of pineapple, ginger spice, cider and fine chalk tannin.
