Description

Loveblock Dry Riesling 2020

Loveblock Dry Riesling has a pale straw colour and green hue. A burst of lemon and lime with a hint of honey, warm spice and flinty minerality. The aromas follow through to the dry and medium-bodied palate.

100% Riesling. The grapes come entirely from Loveblock's family-owned vineyard in Lower Dashwood, where the elevation and windy location challenges the vines. The soil composition has a layer of top soil over a tight clay that the vines can’t penetrate.
Crushing, destemming and immediate pressing of the grapes upon their arrival at the winery. The juice was then floated, warmed and inoculated with an aromatic yeast. A cool fermentation until the wine reaches a balance. Filtering and bottling in July 2020.


Ageing potential: Cellar up to 10 years.
