As always, the 2020 Watervale hails from the Gully View vineyard, which is on red loamy clay over limestone. This is the vineyard that historically supplied Leo Buring, once the maker of Australia’s greatest Rieslings. The fruit is de-stemmed and crushed before pressing, the free-run juice then settled, racked and fermented. Col halted the ferment with around 5 g/L residual sugar to balance the muscular acidity that this terroir delivers. It’s a pithy, chalky and racy white, with lemon and grapefruit juice notes and a juicy, slightly salty close. The residual is perfectly pitched.
