The seemingly countless, memorable vintages of Delatite have claimed a litany of trophies, accolades and rave reviews throughout the world of wine. Her first vines were planted in 1968 on a picturesque rise overlooking the vistas of Mt Buller. It became quickly known that the Delatite site was something quite special, as all of the wines, Riesling in particular, are a profound expression of varietal expression and of place. A deeply involving wine of remarkable purity and engaging complexity, worthy of the freshest sole, dressed in unbuttered butter, almonds and brine.
Delatite are best known for their pristine and aromatic whites, the quality of their Riesling has shone since the early 1970s. After decades of quality harvest and award winning editions, Delatite make exclusive use of the unique strains of yeast which have become native to the vineyard. Priority is given to preserving the vital expressions of the vineyard. Fruit is all hand picked, whole bunch pressed and cold settled. Juices are lightly racked and treated to a wild yeast fermentation, slow and cool, a component is vinified in large, old oak vessels for complexity. Upon completion to dryness, batches are aged on lees for eight months, periodicly stirred to encourage spicy wild yeast flavours. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Light straw hue. Classic Riesling style with rich spicy aromas of cinnamon and floral notes from ferments by wild yeast on solids. The fruit gives a wonderful background to the spice with flavours of citrus and refreshing mineral tightness. The palate is dry but the fruit and spice balance the acidity beautifully. Will develop rich toasty and honeyed flavours as it evolves.
