LIMITED QUANTITIES 100% Riesling Calitzdorp is not the logical place to go hunting for Riesling, but here is another potential ‘hit’ that came out of Rick’s world tour of the Cape in March 2020, just prior to lockdown. Fermented to dryness and with no cold stabilisation, the wine may well throw what the Germans might refer to as weinstein, meaning ‘wine stone’ which refers to the harmless crystals of potassium bitartrate which are a bi-product of fermentation. Rick says these ‘tartrate crystals’ should be viewed as a sign of quality, as they occur naturally in the wine.
