Winemaker’s comments

Riesling is regarded very highly in the Pfeiffer family for its wonderful depth of flavour and great potential for bottle maturation.
Unlike the 2011 and 2012 seasons, there were minimal rain events throughout the 2013 vintage, allowing for a steady receival of fruit and less pressure in the winery.
