Hartenberg Tenacity Riesling


Since the first release in 1984, our Rieslings have achieved something of a local cult status. Driven by a market in search of a "dry" or "trocken" style wine, our 2011 vintage seeks to highlight the purity and complexity of fruit that makes Riesling so individual. Hand-picked at daybreak to ensure only the most heavenly flavours, about 15% of grapes showed the presence of Botrytis. After crushing and de-stemming, the fruit underwent six hours of skin contact at 12 degrees Celcius. After pressing, the juices were fermented using a yeast personally selected by our winemaker in Austria, then stabilised, filtered and bottled.
