2020 Vintage: In stark contrast to the previous year, the 2020 growing season followed a long wet winter that replenished soil water profiles and a wet, windy September. A mild summer included regular rainfall events ensuring a long, cool ripening period. Bunch weights were increased leading to yield levels getting back to average and a harvest schedule also getting back to “normal” with Riesling coming off at the end of March and into April whilst the reds were picked in May. 2020 Eden Valley Riesling will be a stand-out and the reds aromatic and elegant as usual, but not as big.
2020 Grüner Veltliner tasting
Our third Grüner vintage from vines growing blissfully alongside their natural soulmate, Riesling (and showing some similar characters). Pale straw in colour with a savoury nose including cloves and white pepper. The palate is broad offering nectarine and white peach over citrus. A textural wine yet a pure, clean, mineral finish. Chill and drink now, but will also age gracefully
100% estate grown Chardonnay from one of the highest and coolest vineyards in South Australia.
Barrel fermented in a mix of new and seasoned French oak using natural yeast and allowed to develop over 12 months prior to bottling
Apple blossom, yellow peach and gentle baking spices in a mouth filling yet gentle delivery on the palate.
Drinking wonderfully now, with strong ageing potential over the next 5-7 years.
Clear, pale lemon.
This wine smells like fresh-cut grass, mouth-watering pineapple sorbet and juicy green apples.
It lands on the palate with a lime soda effervescence followed by guava and apple juice characters.

Yellow peach and stone fruits are carried across the palate by a mouth-watering acid drive. A hint of lemon pith phenolics provides the wine with lovely texture.
