Aromas of spring blossoms with notes of lemon meringue, this wine is crisp and fresh with sweetness on the palate. The acidity through the wine lifts the freshness and will ensure longevity.

The growing season was back to the mean after 2018’s unprecedented heat. Numerous cold snaps during harvest meant there was a need for helicopters to frost fight at day break. Riesling bunches where plump with lots of berries per bunch. Picking commenced on March 27th

2019 Lowburn Terrace Riesling was picked from Block 1, in the south west corner of Amisfield Estate. Vines are grown in stony Lochar gravel, overlaid by sandy loam.

Careful hand selection of only golden Riesling bunches and a gentle pressing regime gave very vibrant and aromatic juice. The free run juice was fermented cool in a stainless steel tank and fermentation ceased with further cooling when the sugar and acid were in balance. The wine was matured on light fluffly lees for three months with minimal sulphur.
