The wine has delicate floral citrus notes on the nose. Lemon, lime and hints of passion fruit are all here in abundance. The palate is focussed, pure and linear with a delicious juicy lime fruit finish. Elegant and intense with a touch of minerality.
Handpicked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceeded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C. After a short fermentation the wine was bottled soon after to retain freshness and vivacity.
A single Vineyard wine - One outstanding vineyard block is chosen to represent the Eden Valley Riesling. 2009 is the second Eden Valley release and this particular block is adjacent to the 2008 block.
