Sunrise and Riesling!
We’re lateral thinning in vineyard, to give our Riesling some morning sun and airflow through the vines.

Looking good for #vintage2022

Right on time for the festive season, we’re excited to share with you our first release of sparkling wine! 🥂🥂

Our 2016 RIKARD Cuvée is a 50:50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, made in a traditional “grower’s style” from fruit picked in the 2016 vintage.

A ...slightly riper spectrum of fruit flavours with many layers of complexity gained from 12 months barrel ageing, Lee’s stirring, wild yeast fermentation, a portion of malolactic fermentation and from extended bottle age en tirage.
Dosage at disgorgement with zero sugar, we did add a very small amount of Armagnac and Fino sherry at the end for yet even more layers of interest.

Colour is pale straw with a fine bead, melon, pear and citrus aromas up front, followed by a hint of nuttiness and straw. Toasty Lee’s characters emerge as the bead settles and the wine warms up.
A dry palate with lovely limey acidity. The mid palate is fleshed out by four years on lees. The wine finishes savoury and nutty with a touch of phenolic grip.

Perfect as an aperitif, but we quite like it slightly warmer, in a larger glass and once the bubbles have dissipated a little.
A limited amount is now available via our website - link in bio.
Cheers! 🥂

Orange Wine Festival Night Markets are on this Friday 10th December at Robertson Park. A great opportunity to enjoy a glass of your favourite RIKARD wine, taste the delights of the Orange wine region and get some Christmas shopping done (the gift of wine is always a winner)! 🍷

If you ...can’t make it to the markets, join us for a guided wine tasting at the winery - book ahead via link in bio!

Serenity.
Making the most of a break in the November rains and back on the shoot thinning - Riesling and Pinot Noir at 1100m.

This week in the vineyards we’ve been shoot thinning for better airflow, to focus vine energy into the buds and shoots we want, for better vine shape and ultimately to grow less but better fruit!

Also, sliding across to say hello Chardonnay coming up over the guard at La Cloche - we are ...happy to see you up here.
