The grapes for this Riesling were ripened under perfect conditions for optimum concentration and ripe fruit flavours. Berry sizes were less than half normal because of the drought and the crop level was low (1.7T/A). When we harvested on May 4 the grapes were blush pink and in perfect physical condition with sufficiently low sugars to produce a dry style of wine. Our 'Amaranth' distinction, after the unfading flower of Greek myth, denotes a wine which we expect to be particularly rewarding for cellaring. It is not a ‘winemakers selection' made on the basis of perceived quality.
