Riesling was first planted in the shallow, rocky soils of the Eden Valley in the early 1850's. Time has revealed this place to be a natural home for Riesling which, to quote Peter Lehmann, is ‘the noblest white wine variety'. Our Eden Valley Rieslings have the unique distinction of being awarded the trophy for the Best Riesling in the World at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London 5 times – more than any winemaker in the world.
As young wines they show lovely floral aromatics and fresh, tangy crispness. Zesty, clean and refreshing wines that showcase the wonderful crisp mineral acidity typical of the finest Eden Valley Rieslings. As they mature, these flavours soften and honey with age. We believe Eden Valley Riesling to be one of Australia's most distinctive wine styles.
"Peter Lehmann's wild ride through life has paralleled that of riesling, and his endurance is akin to that of riesling. This absurdly lovely wine has a fragrant, lime-accented bouquet, the palate featuring excellent mouthfeel and length; the fruit runs in an unbroken line through to the finish and aftertaste."
Australian Wine Companion
"Bright and tangy, with lovely pineapple and grapefruit flavors that remain juicy and vivid through the dry, silky finish."
Sour, definitely not the sweet taste I would expect of riesling
Disappointed at best. We were expecting a light, sweet wine to sip after dinner. Maybe we received a bad bottle, but this smells and tastes like old shoes. Will not purchase again. Will not recommend to friends. We would give zero starts if that were available.
Really bad, dumped it out.
