A wonderful display of the bond between Eden Valley and riesling. While this wine retains purity and elegance, it offers all the lime-accented fruit you could wish for. It's the finish that seals the deal: long, fine-boned and brilliantly clear, floats in the breeze.

Lemon and dried grassy notes here. The palate is nicely restrained, delivering a long array of lemon and herb flavors in a fresh, zesty style.

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.
