A glass of our Late Harvest Riesling pairs well with most Asian cuisine or a cheese and fruit platter.
On the back of a dry 2019 growing season, the 2020 growing season was again very hot and dry. Limited soil moisture and poor fruit set due to extreme weather at flowering lead to a 40% reduction in yields from the previous season across our vineyards. February saw mild conditions which helped to maintain natural acidity and was a blessing for our vineyards leading up to harvest.
Fruit quality was excellent. Red varieties have great colour, concentration, richness and ripe tannins. White varieties have excellent flavours, purity and balance.
