Overview

Overview

Created in a traditional style, this ‘Survivor’ Vine Riesling from Eden Valley, has notes of citrus blossom, bath salts and musk. The fruit for this wine was sourced from old vines planted in 1935 in Eden Valley. Eden Valley is in a slightly elevated region of the Barossa, perfect for growing Riesling as the higher elevation helps retain natural acidity and lengthens the growing season.
This wine has excellent length of flavour and reflects the qualities of Eden Valley-fine, elegant, and flavoursome

Flavours and Palate

The 2021 Riesling has a juicy palate of yellow peach with hints of florals and citrus. The citrus flavours on the palate are supported by crunchy acidity which provides length, purity and finesse.

Vintage Conditions

The 2020/21 growing season was relatively mild with long dry periods. The Autumn period was very dry and warm resulting in excellent ripening conditions for late season varieties. The Survivor vines yielded lower than average and consequently fruit matured evenly. The fruit quality was very good with optimum flavours and ripeness, while retaining natural fresh acidity. These ideal milder conditions saw the grape phenology mature in line with sugars levels, producing full flavoured wines which retained their natural acidity.
