2008 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling 750ml 4-Pack

The 2008 Petaluma Hanlin Hill Riesling is the product of a drought vintage, which is becoming the norm. However, wonderful balance has been the hallmark of this vineyard since Petaluma's first vintage in 1979 and in 2008 when they achieved low pH and high acid that winemakers dream about. Passionfruit, pear and apple aromas and flavors are backed up by lovely intense lemon-lime with a slatey, mineral dry finish, typical of the Hanlin Hill Vineyard.
 
91 Points, Wine Spectator
 
Established in 1976, Petaluma has unlocked the great potential of Riesling from the Hanlin Hill Vineyard in Clare, pioneered the Piccadilly Valley and Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills and cemented the pedigree of the Evans Vineyard in Coonawarra, South Australia.  Winemaker Andrew Hardy and the Petaluma team firmly adhere to the tenet that if the vineyards are great, and the winemaking responsive, the wines will be outstanding. Indeed, Andrew sees his role as ‘custodian of the vineyards.’

 

Specs

  • Alcohol: 12.5%

The vineyard received 2001°C days of heat in the growing season versus the long term average of 1773°C days. However, this number was skewed by an intense heat wave in the first two weeks of March, by which time the vineyard had been picked and the juice was safely in tank. To the end of February the accumulated heat was only marginally more than average. The hand-picked fruit was transported to the Petaluma Winery in the Piccadilly Valley and processed immediately. The bunches were de-stemmed, the berries gently crushed and chilled to less than 5°C and then pressed in a Willmes tank press. The free run juice was then cold settled in stainless steel tanks, clarifying without filtration. This bright clear juice was then racked into fermentation tanks and inoculated with Petaluma’s chosen yeast. Cool fermentation (10 -13°C) then proceeded over six to seven week and at sugar dryness the wine was chilled in place to -2°C, before a gentle filtration to bottle in June 2008.
