Rieslingfreak No.8 is harvested from the Polish Hill River vineyard. Schatzkammer is a German word meaning ‘Treasure Chamber’ and where German winemakers store their treasured wines. The No.8 is made in a German Kabinett style. Due to European labelling laws, we are not legally allowed to use the word ‘Kabinett’ on the wine labels and therefore we have used the work Schatzkammer. A play on the word Kabinett, as it is my treasured wine! For this wine, each year we source from a few rows that are planted east/west in the Jaeschke Vineyard. This is definitely our best No.8 yet. Harvested nice and early at 9.2 Baume, we finished with wine that is only 6.0% abv, with 58g/L sugar and 10.2g/L acid. The balance of this wine is amazing, and probably John’s wine of the vintage. Harvested early in the season, this Riesling is low in alcohol. Made in a sweet Kabinett style, it retains great amounts of acid, balancing out the sweetness and fruit perfectly.
