Rileys Of Eden Valley
Five Star Halliday Rated Winery - Wine Companion 2016
The inaugural release of the Riley's 2016 vintage Sparkling Wine 'Hare & Roo' is all about freshness, fruit & fun!
Made with a blend of 62% Pinot Noir & 38% Chardonnay grapes grown and hand nurtured on the family estate just outside the township of Eden Valley. The name is derived from the abundant wildlife on and surrounding the vineyard which they somehow all mange to live together harmoniously.
Chardonnay & Pinot Noir grapes grow beautifully in the Eden Valley region of the Barossa where the days are warm but not overly hot and the evening temperatures cool with valley breezes reducing pressure for disease build up in the vineyards.
This wine is dry and refreshing on the palate with flavours of white peach and citrus characters leading to a crisp clean finish.
Perfect to enjoy over the festive months with shellfish, Thai crab cakes or just to celebrate life!
