Wakefield St Andrews Riesling is a multi award-winning single vineyard white wine made from 100% riesling sourced from the Clare Valley wine-growing region of Australia. It is named after the Taylor Family’s historic property which was first established by Scottish immigrants in 1892. Bill Taylor acquired the vineyard in 1995 and the St Andrews range itself was first launched in 1999.
Wakefield St Andrews Riesling is a wine of great delicacy and finesse that will age well. The juice is gently extracted using whole berry pressing to protect the delicate fruit flavours and prevent any extraction of course phenolic character. The juice is then cooled to 10c, all within 15 minutes of harvest. This ensures the true varietal and regional characters are captured and retained. The juice is then cold settled for 24 hours before it is racked of the fine lees and cool fermented in stainless steel vats. It is fermented to produce a naturally dry wine. Bottled with minimal filtration and fining.
