The big Lava,
In 2017 we destemmed the Riesling from the Flinty and volcanic soils over limestone of the Coola Road vineyard for 4 days in open top tank and we isolated 1 barrel which we hyper oxydised by not/ little topping during 3 years to create this incredible beast who has been bottled in Magnum ( 1,5 Liter ) only !
A side project for us to try and achieve an other dimension of flavours and texture in our wines. This special Artesian Lava is the fusion of spices, over ripe apricot yet mineral and saline but showing a silky, full mouth feeling surfing on the oxydative wave !
