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.

About Penfolds Wines:

Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.

Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon
