Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling
2019 SA Top 100 Award Winner! Zeitpunkt 'Redux' A moment revisited.
Vineyard: Situated in the pristine area of Flaxman Valley this Certified Organic Eden Valley Riesling has been hand-picked on two different dates to capture natural acidity, freshness and intense flavour.
Season: Spring was dry and led into a very mild, dry summer with minimal disease pressure, resulting in fruit with high natural acidity and incredible flavours. January started with dry, hot and windy weather, however by the end of the first week, relief came with 60-75mm of rain and a record-breaking coolest January in 11 years. The rain was perfectly timed for dry-grown vineyards, and the mild weather that followed from February through to April delivered an exceptional vintage.
Wine making: The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented on solids followed by bottling without fining and minimal sulphur addition.
Appearance: Pale straw colour
Aroma/Bouquet: Citrus fruits of lemon and lime with a gentle perfume of lime cordial.
Palate: A classic style of Eden Valley Riesling with bright citrus fruits of lime and ripe lemons offer a softly textured palate with gentle acidity. This wine is bound for a long journey if cellared and will reward.
Food Pairing: Fresh seafood or a crisp and crunchy Asian salad with steamed pork dumplings.
Acidity: 6.4 g/L
Residual Sugar: 0 g/L
Production: 300 Cases
Vegan Friendly: Approved
Certified Organic: Approved
Cellar potential: drink now to 10+ years
