2018 PORTRAIT EDEN VALLEY DRY RIESLING

Our Portrait wines are the perfect introduction to the renowned Barossa varietals and their classic styles. The wines are crafted to represent our ‘Portrait’ of what a Barossan Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling or Grenache Rosé should taste like.

Our Portrait wines keep the promise Peter made to growers across the region to always make wines that showcase the true character of the Barossa. They are a nod to the collective heritage and individual capabilities of the people, vineyards and vines of the Barossa, the whole Barossa wine community.

This Eden Valley Riesling is zesty, clean and refreshing when young, then matures to become softer and honeyed with age.

Winemaker’s note

The delicate green/gold colour of the wine leads to an enticing aroma of freshly picked green apples and limes with hints of citrus blossom. The wine displays vibrant lime juice characters with some minerality typical of a quality Eden Valley Riesling. The palate is elegant with a crisp, dry finish. Delicious in its youth, it lends itself to drinking upon release but can also benefit from up to ten years cellaring.

Vintage

After reasonable winter and spring rainfall, soil moisture was adequate during the growing season and Eden Valley vineyards exhibited healthy canopies heading into summer. January and February were warm and dry, with very warm temperatures in February slowing down the pace of ripening. This resulted in refined and elegant Riesling with beautiful natural acidity. The 2018 vintage in Eden Valley will be one to savour.

Vineyards

Carefully selected premium Riesling vineyards high in the hills of the Eden Valley.

Winemaking

The fruit was picked early, crushed, chilled and the juice immediately separated from the skins to enhance delicacy. Following cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was clarified and bottled.

Enjoy

Serve lightly chilled. A perfect aperitif and a great pairing with any Asian cuisine.

Enjoy with shallot pancakes or salt and pepper pork ribs.
