Winemaker's Notes:

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.
