Tasting Notes

This clean Riesling shows lifted citrus, white flower and fresh macintosh apple. Off-dry and fruity. An exceptional wine that is crisp and refreshing with a ripe, Granny Smith apple and peach character.

Technical Notes

This wine is named after the sheep that helped to make it. The sheep were used in the vineyard to eat the grape leaves that shade the Riesling grape clusters. Removing these leaves exposes the grapes to sunlight, enhancing their ripeness and quality.
