|Categories for this Product:
Grape Variety: 100% Riesling
Winemaker: Nicholas Crampton & Aaron Woods
Volume: 175 cases made
Vineyard: Sourced from an established vineyard situated at almost the highest point in the Eden Valley, over 600m in altitude and right in the heart of the valley’s finest vineyards.
Winemaking: The fruit was hand harvested early in the morning into small bins before rapid transportation to the winery. Following a chill overnight at seven degrees overnight the fruit was whole bunch pressed. Only the finest free run, less than five hundred litres per tonne was used. The fermentation was very cool, at around twelve degrees, and allowed to ferment to bone dry. The absence of the influence of solids is crucial to the purity of the style.
Vintage 2020: It will be remembered for high quality across the Barossa in 2020 but yields were down. This was in part due to temperamental spring weather and a hot, dry summer. Altough the yields were affected by the heatwave of December and January, prudent growers managed this well with careful irrigation and maintaining soil moisture. The resulting fruit, (though less of it) was concentrated and exceptional.
Tasting Note: Typically pale with green edges.The nose is redolent of the Eden Valley fresh with floral blossom and citrus aromas along with hints of just-cut green apple.The palate is light with impressively vibrant flfloral and citrus flavours defined by mineral and lime acidity before an impressively long finish. This wine has an intensity, length and cellaring potential that is second to none. Awesome accompaniment for pan-fried
