The grapes are grown in our most southern site, Rockyfeller Vineyard, located on the Golden Mile. The soil type is mostly as the name implies, sandy loam over heavier clay and rock. The block of Riesling Clone 49 is in a cooler pocket of the Rockyfeller Vineyard.
Our Riesling Clone 49 is crafted in an Off Dry style to emphasize its natural fruity richness. This wine is vibrant with flavours of pomelo, orange oil, lemon butter and white peach blossoms, showcasing its opulence. This wine is a fruit forward textural style that has a rich honeyed lingering finish.
This is an exceptional example of Riesling Clone 49 that will age beautifully for the next five to seven years from release date.
