- SMALL BATCH EDEN VALLEY RIESLING
Pale in colour with a vibrant green hue. Lifted aromas of citrus blossom, lemon and jasmine flower with a touch of dried herb. Youthfully attractive with lemon and lime zest and fresh green apple. Some dried herb and perfume add complexity to the fine mineral acidity. The backbone has a flinty character and a touch of slate. The natural fruit acidity highlights the wines ability to age gracefully over time.
93 Points, Wine Showcase Magazine
"Lively citrus nose with lovely ferment characters and palate showing zesty citrus flavours."
92 Points, Patrick Eckel
"A lightly golden yellow in the glass with lime and crushed rock dominating the nose. The palate is a lemon and lime expression of Eden Valley that’s set against a piercingly pure line of acidity, waxy lanolin like richness gives weight to the palate with wet slate and driving length of finger lime to finish. Delicious now, but will age effortlessly."

The Riesling is sourced from a single vineyard in the cool climate, high altitude region of Eden Valley in the Barossa ranges. The grapes were individually picked out in the vineyards for their exceptional quality and picked separately to the rest of the vineyard. To ensure the grapes were harvested at optimum flavour and acid balance, the ripening of the grapes was monitored with regular berry tasting in the lead up to picking, then harvested in the cool of the night. After crushing and must chilling, the free run juice was drained and clarified with minimum skin contact. This juice was then cool fermented between 13 – 15C with selected yeast to enhance the delicate Riesling flavours. The wine was bottled with a screw cap closure to retain the pristine aromas and flavours.
Ready to be enjoyed now and will have a great lifespan which will enable it to be drunk over the next 10 years for those that enjoy aged style Riesling.
