Riesling

2016 Family Riesling

Eden Valley

With a total of 3Ha of Riesling planted on the property we are able to select our best grapes for our ‘Family’ Riesling. After patiently nurturing the grapes throughout the growing season, the grapes were picked and processed using our water press and other traditional methods.

The resulting wine exhibits exceptional Eden Valley flavours of citrus blossom, passion fruit and other tropical fruits, with the dry summer giving it a steely structure with high natural acid.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Family Riesling is handcrafted from specially selected premium grapes from our 3 hectare Riesling vineyard in the cool climate, of Eden Valley.

Light and bright yellow in colour, this wine has a complex, developed bouquet with some honey aromas and just a hint of citrus still lingering.

On the palate, it is so smooth and rich, developing some of the honey characters that define the very best Eden Valley Rieslings when they are fully mature. It is still crisp and tight on the finish which augurs well for its continued development towards being a classic Eden Valley Riesling.

2017 Family Riesling

Eden Valley

The first Riesling vines were planted in 1982. The whole family, including daughter Sally, who now lives in Scotland with husband Angus and daughter Maddy, helped plant the vines so it seemed appropriate that we call our Riesling ‘The Family’.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Family Riesling is handcrafted from specially selected, premium grapes from our 3 hectare Riesling vineyard, in the cool climate of Eden Valley.

It has complex, fragrant, fruity, citrus and passionfruit aromas on the bouquet.

The palate is smooth with plenty of zesty citrus flavours and a lovely, crisp, lingering finish. This is a very elegant Riesling.
