Winery/Brand: Muddy Water


The nose shows spice and stonefruit. A very mineral wine with “hot stones in the rain” displaying from the nose as well. The palate has hints of lemon zest, honey, white pepper and spices. A well balanced wine, showing a lot of complexity.



The Story

Estate grown at our Organic Vineyard on clay soils – these vines are naturally low-vigour and managed carefully with the aim of small amounts of concentrated bunches. Our vines are spur-pruned and entirely managed by hand with limited irrigation.

We slowly pressed Riesling bunches to tank before a brief settling pre fermentation. Partly fermented in old French puncheons this Riesling is complex, long and dry with the ability to age. This wine was fermented with only ‘wild’ yeasts, providing a long slow fermentation.
