"Our love will never grow old, it's Evergreen"

Variety: Riesling
Region: Eden Valley
Alc/Vol: 11.5%
Winemaker: John Harris
Colour: Pale straw with a green hue.

Bouquet: A delicate perfumed nose of lemon blossom and lime with a minerally character adding a third dimension.

Palate: Youthfully attractive but full and textured; the palate opens up with layers of flavour highlighted by citrus characters. Lemon and lime reflect on the palate whilst some crisp apple and natural fruit acidity give a really textural mouthfeel. Extremely approachable in its youth upon release, the wine will have the ability to age gracefully over time.

Winemaking: The Riesling is sourced from a single vineyard in the cool climate, high altitude region of Springton, Eden Valley in the Barossa ranges. The grapes were individually picked out in the vineyard for their exceptional quality to capture natural fruit acidity and freshness of flavour. To ensure the grapes were harvested at the optimum flavour and acid balance, the ripening of the grapes was monitored with regular berry tasting in the lead up to picking, then harvested in the cool of the night. After crushing and must chilling, the free-run juice was drained and clarified with minimum skin contact. This juice was then cool fermented between 13 – 15C with selected yeast to enhance the delicate Riesling flavours. The wine was bottled with a screw cap closure to retain the pristine aromas and flavours.

Cellaring Potential: Ready to be enjoyed now and will have a great lifespan which will enable it to be drunk over the next 5 years for those that enjoy aged style Riesling.
