About The Wine
 
To get the best from Riesling fruit in the Pemberton area the grapes need to harvested at about 10 to 11.5 Baume. At this level of ripeness we manage to capture great levels of natural acidity and minerality.
 
The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning to ensure it arrives at the winery in optimum condition and cold to minimise the oxidation of the natural grape flavours.
 
The fruit was gently processed with the crusher rollers set wide to only gently crack the skins of the grapes.
The Riesling is grown in 2 separate blocks on the vineyard. Both batches of wine were settled for a day at 10C. The juice was racked and inoculated with a yeast and fermented at a cool, constant temperature of around 14 to 16 degrees to enhance the varietal characters.
 
At the end of fermentation wines were blended together to achieve the right mouth feel. The final wine was then stabilised filtered and bottled. The result is a sensational dry Riesling!
 
Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:
 
This wine is like striking gold for us. If you love a dry crisp and acidic Riesling, then this is for you. The winery is just awesome at producing wines that reflect the cool climate region of Pemberton. The fruit quality is out of this world and the bargain our customers are getting at $10.00 per bottle is insane as it is normally $20 under winery brand! This Riesling has also benefited from some good years in bottle.
 
My Score 91/100 Silver Medal.  
 
About The Producer
 
You dont have to be Einstein to figure out who the producer is of this absolutely amazing Pemberton Back Beach Riesling 2013.
This winery was established in 1998. The prevailing temperate climate, gently undulating landscape and the rich gravelly loam soils that overlay the clay base, were all strong deciding features of the selection – quite possibly the same factors that influenced Professor Gladstone’s recommendations.

The vineyard is set amongst magnificent and picturesque Karri and Jarrah forests for which Pemberton is famous. The winery team are small one but a passionate one and are very proud of the widespread acclaim and awards they have won for their wines. Being a boutique winery, they pride themselves on remaining true to our hearts in producing exceptional quality wine, providing our clients with a truly memorable experience and showcasing the beautiful part of the world that is Pemberton.

About the region:
As one of Australia’s youngest wine regions, gazetted in 2006, the small Pemberton Wine Region has already established a reputation for being one the most exciting emerging wine regions. The first commercial vineyard was established in Pemberton in 1982, since then over 40 vineyards have been established in this unique environment.

Surrounding Pemberton and Northcliffe, the region is home to many picturesque vineyards that adjoin karri forests. Most of the vineyards of the Pemberton Wine Region lie between the Donnelly River and the Warren River that flows through the region's middle. The region is frequently referred to as "Karri Country" after the beautiful Karri forests. The soil supporting the region is karri loam a rich, red, fertile soil.

It combines southern latitude with high altitude 100 t0 200 metres above sea level and has a relatively cool climate, making it ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and suited to the production of refined Bordeaux-style wines.
