Description

A toast to the Indigenous families that lived by the river on this land before the Krinklewood family. They too believed the river and mountains held a special nurturing force. We have made this wine again from Gewurztraminer and Verdelho, as a skin contact white wine without pre bottling fining.

Eyes

This wine is a pretty soft peach colour.

Mouth

Bright floral aromas give way to lychee, turkish delight and cinnamon shouldered with fresh minerality

Winemaking Notes

The Gewurztraminer and Verdelho fruit was hand picked and blended together in the initial stage of this wines journey. The grapes fermented dry entirely on skins (with 20% whole bunches) and partial carbonic maceration. After two weeks of slow fermentation, the wine was pressed off in the Basket Press & cold settled in the tank before bottling early to retain primary fruit characters & texture. The wine was unfined & unfiltered to keep all the beautiful aromatics and colour that Gewurztraminer is so famous for.

The River Blend is stunning! my absolute favourite. Raw and earthy, a perfect reflection of where it was created.
