2018 Chaffey Bros Not Your Grandma's Riesling

Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling

Vineyard: A single vineyard located in the Eden Valley region of Springton. The wine grapes were picked to capture both natural acidity/freshness and intensity of 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.

Wine making: The parcels of wine grapes were cold fermented in a stainless steel to preserve purity of fruit before bottled with a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.

Appearance: Clean and clear with a touch of a green hue.

Aroma/Bouquet: Floral, lemon/lime and Lychee aromas.

Palate: Granny Smith apple with lime and orange blossom notes on the palate. Crunchy, refreshing acidity is held taut with mineral backbone.

Food Pairing: Fresh seafood, Coffin Bay Oysters, Thai Green Curry and just enjoy a glass chilled as desired.
