Picked at the cool of night, the fruit was then pressed directly off skins. Fermenting at cool temperatures allowed us to create this perfumed, succulent and mouther-watering wine. Only slightly finned, filtered and bottled to perfection.
It was a stunning year for Eden Valley Riesling with a long cool vintage allowing us to achieve perfect ripeness wile retaining the natural acidity in the grapes.

Another great year as we had a beautiful winter with plenty of rainfall, which meant a healthy and vibrant growing season. Hailstorms at the beginning of the vintage caused damages to our vineyard, resulting in lowered grape yields than previous years, however, the quality of the fruit was not affected.
The cooler temperatures throughout the vintage made it ideal for whites. While the cooler temperature created a much longer vintage (with the reds being harvested in May) allowing the fruit to develop on the vines for longer, we’re seeing beautiful flavours with a lot of depth and concentration. This has undoubtedly created some stunning and elegant wines.
