Aromatically lifted floral notes of Jasmine flower are followed by fresh lime and lemon blossom intensity. On the palate the citrus characters of lemon and lime create a core of intense flavour supported by an enduring mineral line. Further notes of freshly cut green apple indicate a pure expression of Riesling, and one that showcases the flavours typical to Eden Valley.
Hand harvested, chilled to 6oC and whole bunch pressed. It was our intention to craft the finest example of an Eden Valley Riesling. The emphasis was on retaining only the purest free-run juice and fermenting it cool to savour the delicate aromas. The ferment was taken to dryness after which the wine was gently fined, filtered and bottled.
A near perfect ripening season punctuated with weeks of warm dry days and typically cold nights lead to slow but steady favour development and perfect levels of natural acidity at harvest.

Grapes for this single vineyard wine were hand harvested on March 12 from two small blocks on our Uley vineyard at the northern end of the Piccadilly Valley.
Initial juice analysis showed a Baumé of 11.6 degrees, pH 3.09 and titratable acid of 7.7 g/litre. After crushing and gentle pressing, the juice was fermented to dryness at low temperatures to enhance fresh fruit characters.Following stabilisation in tank, the wine was filtered and bottled on 2nd July 2019. Alcohol 12.5%.
Classically varietal and aromatic, the wine displays citrus, pear, guava, elderflower, herbaceous and faint grassy aromas followed by a generous palate with persistent fruit flavours, minerality and crispness and a spicy, tingling finish from the natural grape acidity.
