Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw yellow with tinges of green. Bursting with lifted citrus fruit, in particular limes and lemon, accompanied by fragrant floral notes. 2007 exhibits classic Eden Valley Riesling qualities with a lively palate filled with lime and citrus flavors. This is delightfully balanced with a fine, crisp natural acidity and zesty lemon persistence.

Excellent with Asian style dishes, shellfish with lemon based sauces and perfect with oysters.

Drink while young, fresh and crisp or has the potential for cellaring up to and beyond 10 years. Thre freshness of its youth is maintained excellently under screw cap.

About St Hallett:

As one of the founding wineries of the region and in the strength, warmth and honesty of its wines, St Hallett has come to be regarded as quintessential Barossa.

In the heart of the Barossa Valley, Australia's best known wine region, lies St Hallett, one of the country's premier wine producers. Established by the Lindner Family in 1944, for many years St Hallett's winemaking focus was, like many local wineries, on producing fortified wines. However, during the seventies and eighties, St Hallett turned to explore the true potential of the Barossa through premium table wines. This has resulted in St Hallett's status as one of Australia’s best producers.

St Hallett is renowned for crafting full-flavored, textured wines entirely from Barossa Valley fruit and is credited with producing benchmark wines of the region such as the iconic St Hallett Old Block Shiraz, made from vines aged up to 100 years old.

Winemaker and General Manager, Stuart Blackwell spearheaded the commissioning of the new winemaking facilities in 1988 and the installation of some of the world's most advanced fruit processing and handling equipment. Despite this modern approach, traditional winemaking techniques prevail at St Hallett as they are best suited to the winery's classic style.
