Eden Hall Eden Valley Riesling
Vineyard: The 2017 Riesling was carefully blended from three different blocks within the Avon Brae Vineyard.
Season: In stark contrast to the previous year, the 2017 growing season followed a long wet winter that replenished soil water profiles and a wet, windy September. A mild summer included regular rainfall events ensuring a long, cool ripening period. Bunch weights were increased leading to yield levels getting back to average and a harvest schedule also getting back to ‘normal’ with Riesling coming off at the end of March and into April.
Wine making: NA
Appearance: Pale straw in colour.
Aroma/Bouquet: A perfumed nose of frangipani and rose with a hint of apple.
Palate: The palate is broad including tropical fruits, luscious lime juice and lemon with lip smacking acidity providing a clean finish.
Food Pairing: Great match with seafood, Asian cuisine or full flavoured dishes such as Thai Chicken Curry. Fabulous on a hot Summer’s day to cope with the heat.
