Weisser Riesling, Semillon and Sauvignon blanc
The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and cooled overnight to 4 degrees celsius. The next morning the grapes were pressed as whole bunches. The juice underwent spontaneous fermentation in concrete egg shaped tanks, amphora and older French oak barrels. Deep winter the wine received one sulfur addition. 10 months on the leese, blended and bottled.
94 Points, Tim Atkin
Autumn Equinox is a new wine from Pieter Walser - or rather a resurrected one, as it was called DOK in a previous life - made from an assemblage of Semillon, 30% Riesling and 25% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged in amphoras and old wood for a year, it's sappy, intense and very stony, with pear, lemon zest and lanolin notes and layers of intrigue and complexity. Drink 2023-29’
