Riesling

2019 Stage Door Wine Co. The Greenroom Riesling

Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling

Vineyard: Single vineyard estate grown (Avon Brae) is located in the High Eden region of Eden Valley/Barossa - 500 m altitude

Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall wine grape supply. The dry ripening season through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum and cooler high country breezes allowed the grapes to ripen for a vintage of premium quality.

Wine making: NA

Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.

Aroma/Bouquet: Fresh and zesty notes  of green apple, lemon citrus and flint stone.
