Eden Valley is a cool climate region nestled between 400 and 600 meters above sea level and is part of the Barossa and Mount Lofty Ranges. It is rough, rocky country that belies its ability to produce wines of great delicacy and finesse. The soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock with red clay soils and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The cooler climate of the Eden Valley allows fruit to experience longer ripening periods which is perfect for flavour accumulation and intensity. The Eden Valley grapes were harvested early at optimum maturity. The grapes were picked in the cool of the night and then gently pressed by an air bag press to collect the best free run juice for this wine with only minimal skin contact. The clean juice was then sent into cold fermentation to gain the optimum varietal fruit expression of the vineyard into the wine and gaining crisp acidity to reflect the dry style. Picked from a single vineyard in Eden Valley, the pure fragrant nose of white peach, grapefruit and orange blossom is a celebration of Riesling. The palate is defined by flavours of green apple, chalky acidity and bright crisp natural acid.
