    Neptune is 100% Riesling and aptly named after the god of the sea, for its distinct saline character. After pressing, the juice was transferred to 60% neutral French oak puncheons + 40% unlined clay amphora. Each portion was fermented using non-selected wild yeast, then matured on lees for 18 months in these vessels. Bottled without fining or filtration Neptune tastes like an ocean sea breeze wrapped inside the arms of a juicy lemon.
