2016 Eden Trail Riesling

Comments

Pale colour with green hue; restrained bath salts and lime, fresh lime and spice palate, slatey acid backbone and pithy finish.

Vinification Notes

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

91 Points - Josh Reynolds, Vineous

Green-hued straw. High-pitched aromas of grapefruit, pear skin, lemongrass and honeysuckle carry a vibrant mineral overtone. Nervy and linear on the palate, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors that deepen steadily through the midpalate. Shows emphatic mineral character on the incisive, impressively long finish, which leaves behind zesty citrus fruit and floral notes.

95 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion 2018

Quartz-white; a wine born to rise to the very top, its finesse, purity and balance the foundations for its slow, long-term development. The balance is the outcome of the citrus/apple fruit and its finely etched acidity.
