2016 Eden Hall Wines Reserve Eden Valley Riesling

Vineyard: This is our second Reserve Riesling and is made from fruit, from selected rows on Block 7, on the eastern aspect of the lake at Avon Brae.

Season: The dry weather meant that when the night time temperature dipped, there were again late frosts, but thankfully not damaging Avon Brae. December and early January were warm but rains at the end of January and early March were welcomed. Along with milder weather, we eventually realised the ideal ripening conditions.

Wine making: NA

Appearance: Pale straw yellow in colour.

Aroma/Bouquet: A lifted, perfumed, floral nose, with hints of lavender.
