The Picone Vineyard is located on the windswept upper edge of Vinemount Ridge providing cool and long growing conditions perfect for Riesling. Fruit for this bottling comes from the oldest vines on the property and then fermented naturally with no inoculation. The resulting wine shows strong distinct notes of flint, green apple, and cherry blossom with hints of petrol on the long and complex finish.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.
