The Bros have done it again with this fresh and exciting Riesling!! With notes of slate and metallic characteristics combined with lemon sorbet and an assortment of aromas, this is a lively yet pure Riesling. The name “Tripelpunkt” comes from the combination of grapes from three vineyards across the Eden Valley and expertly blended together to highlight all aspects of the Valley. For us this is a wine rack essential!!

The Nerdy Bits...
Hand-picking combined with a lengthy whole-bunch press cycle (9 hours) wherein gentle skin contact encourages phenolic body. Cold fermented on solids in a temperature controlled inox fermenter using a combination of indiginous and selected yeasts to develop and protect delicate aromas. The ferment is chilled prior to sugar dryness in order to maintain a small (4.4g/L) amount of residual grape sugar. As a stylistic choice, we do not use any fining throughout the winemaking process and only minimum SO2 is added prior to bottling.
