2018 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Zeitpunkt Riesling

Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling

The Zeitpunkt Riesling is certified organic - from vineyard through to winemaking. As with all Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. they are vegan friendly.

Vineyard: Situated in the pristine area of Flaxman Valley this Organic Eden Valley Riesling has been organically grown and hand-picked on two different dates to capture natural acidity, freshness and intense flavour.

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: The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented on solids followed by bottling without fining and minimal sulphur addition.

Appearance: Clean and clear.

Aroma/Bouquet: Aromas of fresh first rainfall with white floral and jasmine notes.

Palate: A classic style of Eden Valley Riesling, light, crisp with notes of minerals and lemon citrus. Very dry on the palate with flavours of wet slate and grapefruit with balanced acidity dancing across the palate to deliver a wine of perfection.

Food Pairing: Lovely with any type of seafood or a crisp and crunchy Asian salad.
