Pressing Matters' Rieslings are inspired by the Mosel styles but are designed to reflect and optimize the outstanding characteristics that Tasmanian Rieslings are capable of producing.

The Riesling clones have been planted on their own roots - a density of 5000 vines per hectare.  The clones are D2V3, 198GM, F8V13 and 239GM.

As already noted, yields are very low (the highest to date being 6 tonnes per hectare) and wines are now being produced with 4 levels of residual sugar (or levels of sweetness).  The approximate levels of residual sugar are reflected in the labeling - hence:

R0 (bone dry),

R9 (dry),

R69 (medium sweet) and

R139 (sweet).

These Rieslings are also significantly lower in alcohol than most Australian Rieslings and the intense fruit flavours are balanced with natural acidity.
