wine notes

2010 Reserve Eden Valley Riesling

The Fruit:

The fruit for this wine was sourced from the cool climate Eden Valley region. The 2010 vintage was an absolutely stunning vintage providing perfect, low yielding grapes with a real delicacy and finesse along with mouth- watering, natural acid. Two unique low yielding vineyard blocks were selected for this wine, all hand-picked providing an incredible intensity of fruit with lively aromatics and fine natural acidity.

The Winemaking:

All of the fruit was whole bunch pressed to maximise the elegance of the wine. Only the free run juice was used and after settling for 48 hours, the juice was racked and a cultured yeast added to begin a cool fermentation at 11°c. After a four month maturation on lees in stainless steel, some in stainless steel hogsheads, the wine was racked ready to bottle.

2010 Reserve Eden Valley Riesling

The Comments:

Pale green in colour with an elegant bouquet of fresh limes, citrus and hints of white truffle. The unrivalled elegance and pristine fruit profile are very indicative of the vintage. Rich and supple fresh lime and white peach are all prominent on the palate, with secondary characteristics of honey and lemon butter. All of these secondary characteristic will begin to dominate the wine as it ages gracefully for the next 10 years. The natural acidity also provides a linear backbone and balance to this rich mid palate that will give the wine a vibrancy and crispness as it ages. This wine drinks exceptionally well now (2014), but will also reward 8-12 years of careful cellaring. A perfect choice as an aperitif or match with scallops, shellfish or smoked mackerel terrine.
