*Riesling wines from Eden Valley can cellar for decades. The high level of acidity within the Riesling variety, makes Riesling the perfect wine for long term collecting. However, the wine will develop in texture, colour and citrus flavours; transforming from a light crisp style, to an 'oily' and dense complex palate. For true lovers of the Riesling variety, long term cellaring is much sort after.

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: Distinctive lime and citrus notes burst through an exhilarating lift of candied fruits; takes me back to a dry/Fino Sherry with Grandma's trifle.
Palate: A generous explosion of lime and candied fruit which trails to a lingering and dry crisp finish. To lighten the flavours, chill and add a generous handful of ice.
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!
