The Riesling blocks were harvested separately over five days from our Seaview Vineyard. The fruit was pressed gently, separating the free run juice from the pressings into stainless steel tanks.
After settling for 72 hours, the clear juice was racked off. They were inoculated with carefully selected yeast strains to capture and enhance the aromatic Riesling flavors. Once fermentation was completed, the wine was racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Our Seaview Vineyard is the most coastal vineyard in New Zealand and experiences some fairly harsh conditions as a result. It produces small, thick-skinned berries with intense flavours. In comparison, our Willow Flat Vineyard is further inland with reduced coastal influences, and creates a much sweeter fruit.
Leave the land better than we found it
At Yealands, we aim to leave the land better than we found it. We achieve this through a wide range of initiatives and on-going projects including developing wetlands, making our own special compost and using natural pest control measures in our vineyard.
