HEY TOMORROW & BEN HAINES 2021 RIESLING 2L
At Hey Tomorrow, we have long admired the wines of Ben Haines. Since graduating from the University of Adelaide with a viticulture degree, he has gained experience at wineries across the globe, and held winemaking roles with esteemed Australian estates including Mitchelton, Yering Station and Mount Langhi. More recently, Ben has been able to take the step to focusing on the Ben Haines label, basing himself in the Yarra Valley, whilst also making time to study under the Master of Wine program! His wines are expressive, confident, and continue on a skyward trajectory, year on year.
What's in the box?
In possibly a world first, this aromatic and lively, bone dry Riesling will be bagged with no added sulphur! The nose is floral, with ripe apple and pear, and a touch of white peach, with super fresh lemon acidity. A wine of beautiful texture and colour!
Unfined and unfiltered, this wine is naturally lightly cloudy.
Grown on the banks of the Goulburn River - soils are prior river stream alluvial. Clay loam topsoils with heavy clay subsoil.
Hand-picked, destemmed, then left to soak at ambient cellar temperature on skins pre-ferment for four days to build texture and some extra body. As the ferment started to tick off naturally, the fruit was pressed to tank for a cool, natural fermentation. Fermented to complete dryness in stainless steel.
