Riesling

2018 Eden Hall Wines Opulence Off-Dry Eden Valley Riesling

Vineyard: The first venture for making a semi-sweet Riesling in the Eden Hall wine range. Sourced from the single estate vineyard and hand managed to meticulous detail. Grown at high altitude in the high Eden region (550m) of the Barossa which entails a long and cool ripening.

Season: The 2018 growing season started with average winter rains following into a dry spring and summer period. Ripening in the vineyard was hasty but impressive quality of wine grapes was achieved with minimal disease pressure.

Winemaking: Riesling fruit was gently pressed before placed in a chilled fermenter. Residual sugar was kept to a minimum to ensure low alcohol was attained, resulting in a wine of generous fruit and acidity.

Appearance: Pale straw colour.

Nose: Aromatic sweetness allures you to entice for a moment longer. Highly perfumed of rose petals and musk nuances.

Palate: A generous palate of forward fruit dominated by Pink Lady apples and cinnamon spice. Integrated acidity is subtle with delicate nuances delivering a soft and deliberately tempting wine.

Food Pairing: Enjoy chilled as an aperitif, spicy Asian foods, cheese plates or desserts; a wine for all occasions!
