2018 Foudre Ferment Riesling
95 points - James Halliday
The aromatic juice is given extended skin contact then wild fermented in a large French oak foudre (barrel) made by the famous cooper Marc Grenier. The resultant wine exhibits both the complexities of a barrel ferment and spontaneous fermentation without the overt oak flavour, due to the large size and subtlety of the foudre.
Colour: Pale straw with hints of silver.
Bouquet: An intriguing nose of florals and citrus, evoking finger lime, elderflowers and wet mill stone.
Palate: A latticework of creamy citrus flavours entwined with the unrelenting drive of steely acidity and powdery minerality.
