Story Behind The Label

Rex Craker, long time family friend of the Pfeiffers and Whistler’s biggest Riesling customer, sadly passed away in 2021. Now, namesake Rex the peacock and his girlfriend Priscilla, spend most of their time down at the winery, so be sure to keep an eye out for the 2 birds next time you visit. The compass shows that the fruit is now sourced to the north east of our property in Light Pass, which for us, is out Yonda!

 

The Fruit

Grown by the 6th generation Scholz family on the sand belt of Light Pass.

 

Winemaking

Harvested in the cool of the night and pressed away from the skins straight away. This wine was fermented in a stainless steel tank at 12 degrees before filtering and bottling on the 1st of May 2023. The native yeast found in the vineyard carried out the fermentation, which creates a wine with more complexity and layers. No fining agents were used to make this wine, meaning that this wine is Vegan friendly.

 

The Wine

This wine has brilliant clarity, with a very pale straw colour and a fresh green hue. Aromas of fresh lime and wet slate dominate the nose, with hints of jasmine and white flowers.

 

The palate is crisp with loads of lemon & lime characters with floral notes. The finish is long and mineral driven with mouth watering acidity.

 

Grapegrowers: Jack and Peter Scholz

 

Winemaker: Michael J. Corbett

 

Alcohol: 11.9%

 

pH: 2.98

 

T.A.: 8.24 g/l
