Tapanappa Eden Valley 2018 Riesling

$35.00 inc GST

Tapanappa 2018 Eden Valley Riesling made for Tapanappa by Con Moshos, using the techniques honed at Petaluma as we worked together over the decades of the late 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Con selected the Bartholomeus Vineyard for this wine based on his experience at Mount Adam through the 10 years from 2005. Eden Valley Riesling also closes the circle for me as the last time I harvested Riesling from this wonderful cool region was in 1975, when I made the legendary 1975 Siegersdorf Riesling for Thomas Hardy and Sons. The wine reflects the austere granitic soil, cool climate terroir of Eden Valley and is floral and bone dry.  

Vintage Notes

Winemaking Notes

The hand-picked Riesling grapes were delivered to the Tapanappa Winery in the Piccadilly Valley. There they were destemmed, roller crushed and chilled to 2C on the way to the Willmes airbag press. Some of the separated stalks were added back to the cold must in the press to assist rapid juice draining. The drained cold free run juice was augmented by the first light pressing fraction and allowed to settle in tank to achieve juice clarity.

After an extended settling the clear Riesling juice was racked and warmed to fermentation tank to undergo a three-month cool fermentation with one of Tapanappa’s selected yeast strains. At the finish of fermentation, the dry wine was chilled to -2C, to settle the yeast and cold stabilise the wine.

After a month of settling the clear wine was racked and carefully bottled to preserve the delicate aromas and flavours of the special Riesling variety.
