Winemaking Notes
Cliff Edge Riesling is sourced from two premium sites at Mount Langi Ghiran; the Langi Old Block Riesling planted in 1975 makes up the core of this blend, with the remainder harvested from our Hollows vineyard – a marginally warmer site on the northern slopes of Mount Langi Ghiran. Langi’s very cool climate, together with granite sands and minimal irrigation delivers great purity and stunning natural acidity. The Hollows brings beautifully lifted floral and spice aromas, and wonderful texture and generosity to the palate. Together, the two create an intense and balanced wine with great cellaring potential The 2015 growing season delivered excellent fruit set and balanced yields. After some January rain and unseasonably mild temperatures throughout January and February, the cooler temperatures continued throughout March and April contributing to slow and steady ripening. Despite the unusually cool summer, early sugar accumulation delivered fruit with optimal levels of natural acidity, and bright zesty flavours. Hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed and racked with a high portion of solids. Carefully selected yeasts were used for a slow, cool ferment to ensure aromatics and varietal expression were captured optimised. After a few months on lees, the 2015 Cliff Edge Riesling was blended and bottled in August.

Never fails to please, a legacy of love Trevor Mast had for Riesling after his time making it in Germany. It has begun inching its way to maturity, and is best left at the job without interference over the next 4 years.
