2018 Chaffey Bros Wine Co. Zeitpunkt Riesling

Barossa Eden - Valley Riesling

Vineyard: Situated in the pristine area of Flaxman Valley this Organic Eden Valley Riesling has been hand-picked on two different dates to capture natural acidity, freshness and intense flavour.

Season: The vintage can be characterized as long and cool with good winter rains providing high moisture levels in the soil. January to February was cooler than expected with March having warmer days 2 - 3 degrees above average.

Wine making: 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.
