It is an exceptional year for this small parcel of Eden Valley Riesling. Picked in the cool of night, the fruit was pressed directly off skins, fermented at cool temperatures to allow the creation of delicate floral wine. After fermentation, the wine was racked, filtered, and bottled.
The 2021 Impressionist Riesling is all about balance. It has beautiful acidity that is countered by just the right amount of residual sugar. This makes for a delicious wine that is still well-balanced and rounded, perfectly showcasing the quality of our Eden Valley fruit.

The 2021 Vintage shaped up to be a very good year. The first break of the drought since 2020 brought much-needed rainfall throughout winter, perfect for our whites. The longer ripening period resulted in richer, more flavourful whites, with higher acidity levels and great depth of flavour and colour. Reds also benefited from the extra time on the vine, developing complex flavours and aromas.
