OMEO Riesling grapes are gently whole bunched pressed, settled then cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation is stopped to retain a little natural grape sugar to balance the crisp acidity. The Riesling is aged on light lees in tank over the winter, filtered and bottled early spring. (September / October)
