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: A late vintage compared to previous years. Cooler days and nights, which meant the flavours were more concentrated due to a longer ripening period.
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.
Acidity: 6.4 g/L
Residual Sugar: 0.4g/L

Cellar potential: drink now to 10+ years
Winemakers: Daniel Hartwig & Theo Engela
Vineyard: Mountadam Vineyards has long been recognised as one of Eden Valley's pinnacle vineyards. Established in the 1970's and mastering cool climate varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer before an array of red wine varieties took hold. The vineyard is situated in the High Eden region of the Barossa at an altitude of 550m, where the breezes and slow ripening micro-climate enable superior quality of wine grapes.
Season: The vintage can be characterised as long and cool with good winter rains providing high moisture levels in the soil. January to February were cooler than expected with March having warmer days 2 - 3 degrees above average.
Wine making: Riesling grapes are handpicked from 44 year old vines, gentle pressed and chill fermented prior to bottling.
Appearance: Pale straw with green hue
Aroma/Bouquet: Citrus blossom, lemon and jasmine flowers with underlying dried herb.
Palate: Lashings of lemon and lime citrus with chalky minerals typical of the Eden Valley region. Dried herbs with subtle nuances of floral perfume linger across the palate with a dry and crisp finish.
Food Pairing: Seasonal summer salads with Halloumi or King Fish, chilli crab linguni or an intensely rich and creamy seafood chowder.
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 10+ years
Wine maker: Helen McCarthy
