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:

Founded by a young, English doctor in 1844, Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines that have changed the landscape of Australian winemaking. Over the past century, Penfolds has 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 standout wines, both white and red, have been released under the Penfolds masthead. Under the direction of master winemaker, Peter Gago, Penfolds is now found in every major wine market in the country. Extraordinary wines such as Block 42 and Bin 60A have also been released during his tenure. Penfolds wines are now widely celebrated for their diversity and quality across many price-points. The strength of Penfolds is that the wine comes first. Penfolds' range of table wines is utterly Australian, evoking a generosity of spirit and the beauty of the Australian landscape.
