Riesling (100%)
2019
Grampians, Victoria

Tasting Notes

Light, bright pale straw, green hues.
Orange blossom, dried ginger and mixed citrus peel.
Sitting in the orange citrus spectrum, mandarin and tangerine framed with florals and ginger spice. A beautiful natural acidity along with a distinct minerality provide the palate with texture and length. A wine that has clarity, purity and shows our site well. Drink now or cellar until 2040.

Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to two stainless steel tanks. The juice was then cold settled and racked with a small proportion of fluffy lees. Each of the two parcels are left on gross-lees for a period of four months to further build complexity and mouthfeel around the definitive ‘Langi’ acidity. The wine was then racked, blended and bottled in early July 2019.
