Stage Door Eden Valley The Greenroom Riesling
Vineyard: Single vineyard estate grown (Avon Brae) is located in the High Eden region of Eden Valley/Barossa.
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.
