Settlement Ashmore Riesling 2019
This is vibrant Riesling, with a citrus profile and notes of red apple, peach and fresh herbs. Hand picked fruit from the north facing Ashmore vineyard is whole bunch pressed, fermented, and left with a delicious pinch of residual sugar. All day sun coupled with cool Marlborough nights, makes for ideal, cool climate growing conditions. The vineyard was planted in 1997 and converted to organics beginning in 2009, and full certification achieved in 2012.
Steve Planthaber was raised surrounded by vines in the Barossa. Having earned his stripes winemaking at Cloudy Bay, he established Settlement. The wines are sophisticated expressions of four different organic, Marlborough vineyards.
