  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Created as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling captures the essence of the Eden Valley Riesling style. The region's high altitude and cool climate produces Riesling with great complexity and capacity for long term cellaring. South Australia is gaining worldwide recognition for producing definitive Australian Riesling, with the Eden Valley at the very head of the field. The wines show typically focussed apple and lime aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavor. The development of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling marks a new chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in fine winemaking from this variety.

Critical Acclaim

"Has a gently floral bouquet, then a fine and elegant palate ranging through lime, apple and pear, with perfectly balanced acidity providing length and a gloriously fresh aftertaste."
96 Points

"Fragrant and fresh, this riesling focuses on a narrow set of flavors, its lime-driven acidity and tart peach making a mouthwatering combination with oysters."
