Astrolabe Farm Vineyard Riesling
As quoted from the Astrolabe site, "And now for something different. Wines in this range demonstrate Simon's innovative treatment of specific parcels of fruit and his willingness to challenge the 'everyday' winemaking process. Simon loves to experiment while capturing the raw, ethereal and sometimes undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties."
