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.
"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."
Australian Wine Companion
"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."
