  • Tasting notes

    Fresh, juicy and refreshing with a slight spritz which makes the mouth water. Medium dry in style with the grapes' natural sweetness balancing the zingy, crisp acidity for which the Riesling grape is famous and the finish is long, zesty and fruity.

  • Viticultural notes

    A warmer and drier than average spring hurried things along and early estimates indicated above average bunch numbers in most varieties. Late spring and early summer were relatively mild resulting in good flowering and fruit set. However, dry conditions continued and both berry size (lowering actual yield) and shoot length were somewhat diminished. Several heat spikes in late January and early February (it’s not a South Australian summer if you don’t have a couple!) interrupted veraison, with the picking of some of our earlier ripening vineyards delayed until the beginning of March (later than expected). Perfect, mild ripening weather followed to the end of April ensuring all Eden Valley parcels achieved full flavour ripeness slightly earlier than forecast.
