2017 Clem Blanc
Our unique Estate Grown white field blend comprising of 40% Riesling, 27% Grüner Veltliner, 13% Pinot Gris, 12% Pinot Blanc, 5% Chardonnay Musquè and 3% Gewürztraminer is sourced from our close-planted vineyards (5208-7700 vines/ha). Handpicked together at very low yields with intense concentration of flavours, the grapes were whole bunch pressed, with some parcels crushed and left on skins for 48 hours. The varieties were co-fermented with wild yeasts, and maturated in older 500 litre puncheons, and kept on lees for 5 months. 50% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. Bottled November 2017.
A complex, textural wine, opening with aromas of orange blossom, honeydew, jasmine and pink musk stick, with savoury notes of white pepper, celery and wet slate. The palate follows showing ripe pears, yellow stonefruits, pawpaw and spice (both sweet and savoury), with plenty of weight, texture, and length, closing with refreshing natural acidity.
