Von Rieben Chardonnay 2020
Named in honour of our forebear, Baron Hermann Von Rieben, who originally settled on the property with his family in the 1850s. The historic site of the Von Rieben Hotel sits adjacent a majestic lagoon teaming with fish, bird life and the vineyards which produce this estate grown wine. The ancient sand soils overlying limestone where the grapes are grown are perfectly suited to Chardonnay. Picking is done in the cool of the night to retain the natural freshness and acidity. Picked in the vineyard on average at 12.3 Baume it allowed us to maintain the natural acid and have some lovely bright fruit characters. Extended lees contact was conducted to achieve soft rich mouthfeel.
