Very pale straw with bright green tints. The nose shows lifted aromas of bath salts, citrus blossom and fresh lime zest. The palate is fresh and lively with the focussed line and length that is so characteristic of classic Eden Valley Riesling. Refreshing citrus zest and fresh green herb flavours are complemented by a fine lime acidity and an underlying mineral restraint.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"This is a tiptop wine from a great vintage. Its blossom-accented bouquet is expressive and attractive, but it's the perfectly presented palate that puts its quality beyond doubt. It's precise, balanced, elegant and long, lime and lemon flavours centre stage with acidity providing context."
90 Point Rated - Mike Bennie The Wine Front
"This has a charm. Green apple, lime, faint frangipani floral scents. Nice start. Palate has a crispness, bit of a crunch, green herb on green apple juice, faint blackcurrant, doing all the good things. It’s refreshing and keen in its edginess. It’s a nice drink."
Our estate vineyard perched in the high country of Eden Valley where the combination of cool climate and altitude provide the ideal conditions for producing the distinctive, beautifully structured and balanced Riesling for which this region has become synonymous. Riesling was the foundation variety of the Vineyard with the original plantings dating from 1975. Thin gravel soils, limited water and vine age ensure crop levels at the vineyard are moderate, producing wines with a characteristic quartz-like precision and the ability to age gracefully.
At the Vineyard we ensure each vintage is of a consistently high quality. Grapes are picked in the cool of the night, with gentle handling of the free- run juice to retain maximum fruit aromatics. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts to maintain fruit purity and freshness in the final wine.
