Mountadam Vineyards Eden Valley Riesling

Vineyard: Mountadam Vineyards has long been recognised as one of Eden Valley's pinnacle vineyards. Established in the 1970's and mastering cool climate varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer before an array of red wine varieties took hold. The vineyard is situated in the High Eden region of the Barossa at an altitude of 550m, where the breezes and slow ripening micro-climate enable superior quality of wine grapes.

Season: The vintage can be characterised as long and cool with good winter rains providing high moisture levels in the soil. January to February were cooler than expected with March having warmer days 2 - 3 degrees above average.

Wine making: Riesling grapes are handpicked from 44 year old vines, gentle pressed and chill fermented prior to bottling.

Appearance: Pale straw with green hue

Aroma/Bouquet: Citrus blossom, lemon and jasmine flowers with underlying dried herb.

Palate: Lashings of lemon and lime citrus with chalky minerals typical of the Eden Valley region. Dried herbs with subtle nuances of floral perfume linger across the palate with a dry and crisp finish.
