2017 Eden Trail Riesling

Comments

Pale straw with quartz highlights.  This finely structured wine shows delicate lemon and lime flavours with mineral and floral notes.  The palate is crisp and well balanced with a fine line of acidity and classic Riesling length.  This wine is drinking beautifully now but will age elegantly for many years.

 

Vinification Notes

Picked during the cool of night. An intentional minimalistic approach to the winemaking process to ensure the vineyard character sings. Free run juice, fermented cool , minimal fining and filtration.

Vintage Notes

An above average wet spring and cooler than average summer temperatures led to a later start to picking than normal. This combined with a long and mild ripening period meant that our fruit developed to a beautiful level of maturity on the vine.  This has led to outstanding flavours and elegant, expressive wines.
