Barossa - Eden Valley Sparkling Riesling
Sparkling Riesling is a new wine style introduced by Chaffey Bros. as the first Eden Valley Sparkling Riesling. It is light, crisp and refreshingly aromatic; very much like the Italian Prosecco - simply delicious!
Vineyard: Grown from old vines in the Fechner family vineyard located in the northern end of Eden Valley, known as Moculta. Vineyard: 380m
Season: Eden Valley received good winter rains which set the growing season off to a good start. Flowering was consistent with bunches setting well and generous quantities expected. Summer was warm and dry with the added benefit of Eden Valley's high altitude allowing cool evening's and breezes to assist with wine grapes maintaining freshness and high levels of natural acidity
Winemaking: A blend of Riesling 80%, Kerner and Gewurztraminer, co-fermented and finished with a superfine bubble.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour.
Aroma/Bouquet: Subtle aromas of tropical fruits.
Palate: Mineral notes of fresh flint, white peaches and zesty lemons explode from the glass. A light fizz on the palate that lifts this wine to a third dimension, light and refreshing.
Food Pairing: Shellfish, spicy cuisine & cheese platters.Alcohol: 12%
