PROFILE
Tapanappa 2016 Eden Valley Riesling is the second wine made for Tapanappa by Con Moshos, using the techniques honed at Petaluma as we worked together over the decades of the late 70¿s, 80¿s and 90¿s.

Con selected the Bartholomeus Vineyard for this wine based on his experience at Mount Adam through the 10 years from 2005. Eden Valley Riesling also closes the circle for me as the last time I harvested Riesling from this wonderful cool region was in 1975, when I made the legendary 1975 Siegersdorf Riesling for Thomas Hardy and Sons.

The very ripe Riesling grapes were hand harvested and destemmed, crushed and chilled to 2°C to the Willmes Merlin press. Con insisted on adding a small amount of sulphur at the crusher and adding back by hand a proportion of the separated stalks to the cold must in the press.

Only the free run juice and the very light first pressing were collected and settled to clarity over a week before fermentation was initiated. Fermentation with one of Tapanappa¿s own yeast strains was slow and cool and dryness was achieved after 3 months.

The finished wine was chilled to -2°C and allowed to settle to clarity before bottling in November 2016.

Tasting Notes
Tapanappa 2016 Eden Valley Riesling is a true dry late pick Riesling style from a very warm vintage. While it has the floral rose petal and faint daisy aromas typical of Eden Valley Riesling it is fuller bodied and textured than normal, a reflection of the vintage.

The Tapanappa 2016 Eden Valley Riesling is an unusual wine because of the vintage but ¿it is a true reflection of this unique vineyard terroir¿.
