"This release deserves some sort of award for consistency, year in and year out. The 2011 is light to medium in body and long, zesty and vibrant on the finish. Aromas and flavors of bergamot, honey (although the wine is completely dry) and toast are classic aged Eden Valley Riesling. Drink now–2030." April 2017

Product Description:

Produced from old vines farmed on the coolest slope. Bottle ageing for five years before release transforms fresh lemon and floral aromatics into a complex wine of limes and brioche. Further richness and complexity will accumulate over future decades.

Pale straw in colour with green hues. Enticing aromas of freshly squeezed lemon with a hint of white flowers. Bottle aged characters of toast, clove oil and lemon grass have started to emerge. The palate shows great length and depth with concentrated power, pristine fresh lime juice overlaid with toasted brioche, sage oil and lemon grass. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the favour intensity. Released in 2016 after 5 years of bottle age, this wine will gracefully continue to age for many years for those who appreciate bottle aged Riesling. Try with Foie Gras or duck breast with five spice glaze or fresh gnocchi with olive oil and shaved truffles. - Winery
