Barossa - Eden Valley Riesling
Vineyard: The Jellicoe vineyard is situated high in the Eden Valley region of the Barossa perched at 475 metres above sea level. Low-yielding, 30 year old Riesling vines are planted on lean, rocky yellow podzolic soils typical to the terrior of the region. The cool climate perfectly accentuates the classic Riesling aromas and flavours that have made the Eden Valley world famous.
Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall wine grape supply. The dry ripening season through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum and cooler high country breezes allowed the grapes to ripen for a vintage of premium quality.
Wine making: NA
Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.
Aroma/Bouquet: Youthful and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows Gala apple, lemon/lime zest, cherry blossom and subtle flinty notes.
Palate: Concentrated and linear mouth feel with structured lively acidity. Yellow peach with lemon sherbet and wash slate develop on the palate with a crisp and dry finish.
Food Pairing: BBQ scallops, King George Whiting or Chilli and crab linguine.
Residual Sugar: 4.6 g/L
Cellar potential: 10+ years

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.
