For true lovers of the Riesling variety, long term cellaring is much sort after.

Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling
Vineyard: Located in the Eden Valley region of Springton on a gentle slope is the Forbes & Forbes Riesling vineyard. Grown at an altitude of 440 meters in sandy loam soil with an array of ancient rock forms consisting of schist, quartz, ironstone and granite.
Season: Generous winter rain replenished the soil profile from late winter into early spring. Cool evenings allowed for slow fruit development leading into warm summer days. The season in combination with cool evenings maximised Riesling flavour with consistent growth and quality bunches. Certainly a vintage of premium class.

Appearance: Clear to pale green
Aroma/Bouquet: Fresh citrus, perfumed petals and green apples.
Palate: Zingy mandarin overtones with an abundance of lemon and limes. Washed slate minerals fill the palate with fresh crisp acidity, dry and well balanced.
