Wiley Vineyard Riesling, 2020

Produced by Read Holland Wines

Extrovert right here! Charmer! This incredibly expressive wine has freesia & jasmine on the nose. Followed by nectarine, key lime, and mandarin. The palate is extremely concentrated, only old vines can brings this concentration. The palate is full of lemon curd with pink lady apply acidity. Very textured with a core of minerality.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

Fermented in concrete egg. The wines in concrete are very textural due to the constant lees stirring due to the egg's shape.
