Stagård 2018 Riesling "501"
501 represents the first 500 litre oak barrel used at the estate (up until the 2015 vintage, there was no use of oak in the cellar). The best grapes of all the Riesling vineyards are selected and handpicked to be spontaneously fermented in this 500L oak barrel. It remains on the lees until the following September to gain additional structure and depth. The 501 delivers exotic aromas and a salty minerality. It should be decanted!
Fermented spontaneously, with berries, in 500L oak after 48 hour maceration. Aged 11 months in 500L oak with ~10% berries.
