The Vineyard

The Brightwater vineyard vines are grown in an extremely stony area of the vineyard, where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict plant vigour and to crop at low levels. To further enhance the aromatics, leaves were removed to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone.

The unirrigated Redwood Valley vineyard is situated on a gently sloping, north-facing clay site; the vines range in age from 11 to 28 years. Vertical shoot positioning helps to expose the berries to sunlight, thus getting maximum intensity and optimal ripeness.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Seifried Riesling comes from our Brightwater vineyard with a small portion from our Redwood Valley vineyard. Delicate fruit flavours and aromas were retained from the vineyard using careful canopy management. Grapes were picked at optimal ripeness in good condition. Fruit was de-stemmed and pressed immediately after harvest and a cool fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks to retain the clean aromatic fruit characters. The wine was then blended, stabilised and bottled in July 2011.
