Barossa - Eden Valley Sweet Riesling
Vineyard: The Riesling used for Ratafia is located at our Avon Brae vineyard in the High Eden region of Eden Valley. Grown at an altitude of 490m with regular breezes allowing for healthy growing conditions.
Season: The 2006 vintage is seen as another high quality year but yields in most varieties were down by 15-20%. The vintage was one of the earliest on record, with whites were nearly all picked by the end of March.
Winemaking: The wine grapes were allowed to sweeten on the vine before hand harvesting and traditionally pressed before chill fermentation. Once fermented dry, an addition of fortified wine was added before bottling and aging to release.
Appearance: Pale yellow golden colour.
Aroma/Bouquet: A distinctive toffee apple nose with hints of fairy floss.
Palate: A generous palate of rich, mouth filling fruit with golden syrup characters, trails on to a lingering, cleansing finish.
Food Pairing: Cheese plates, a large glass of ice for a refreshing summer wine, de-glazing, create a syrup for citrus sponge. Versatile and enticing!
Residual Sugar: 3.04 g/L
Production: 2000 dozen (375ml)
Cellar potential: 25+ years
Winemaker: Christa Deans
Barossa - Eden Valley Wine Collection
A premium and classic collection from Gatt Wines, showcasing the High Eden wine region of the Barossa, South Australia. The Gatt vineyard consists of an ancient landscape of quartz and granite rocks which have formed over a million of years ago, with sandy loam and clay soils at 550m altitude.
Winemaker David Norman and Viticulturist Gill Rogers, have nurtured these vines to produce limited yields with ultimate quality in a bottled wine.
The Gatt six pack wine collection offers both red and white wines. The Shiraz and Cabernet will delight you with intense colour and complexity; layers of sweet ripe fruit intertwine with spicy notes, liquorice, toasted oak, and sweet blackcurrants.
The white wines offers something fresh and crisp, with a mineral driven 2018 Riesling, to a 2010 cellar release Riesling. This aged beauty will showcase toasty, nutty flavours, with hints of buttered popcorn with a complex and divine, long palate.
The aromatics will captivate you of all wines in this six pack and although bottle aged for the ultimate enjoyment, there is no hesitation if you wish to cellar longer. We highly recommend spoiling yourself with a collection from Gatt Wines.
