Mesh Eden Valley Riesling

From three vineyards high on the slopes of Eden Valley, pickers pedantically divide Riesling grapes row by row. Clare Valley’s Jeffrey Grosset and Eden Valley’s Robert Hill Smith oversee the whole process before taking their chosen half of harvest, parting ways and interpreting the fruit as they each see fit.


Each element of the split harvest begins as nearly identical – save for the fruit selected after vine tasting from Jeffrey and Robert – but are made according to the two makers respective philosophies. After that, and much debate, both efforts are blended to showcase a subline Eden Valley Riesling.

Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
