One of Eau Vivre’s new and exciting releases of 2013. The location of this vineyard is a stone’s throw from the winery. Nestled alongside a westernly sloped ridge, which provides excellent sun exposure for slow and even ripening. Sustainable Viticulture practices are employed with regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) at stress tolerant periods; promote rich intense flavors and aromas while maintaining the grapes natural high acidity.

Early morning hand harvested to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The Riesling grapes are whole cluster pressed, the juice transferred to a stainless steel tank and allowed to settle overnight before being inoculated. Fermented slowly at a cool temperature to help retain its appealing fruit characters and true varietal expression. Extended lees contact for three months adds richness and complexity to this unique wine. Enjoy!
