The 2018 Rieslings from Eden Valley are highlighted by their unusually low alcohol. The cause was a 'sugar block' from heat very early in the growing season (note we are at 10.9% Alc/Vol!). Yields were average due to healthy rains during winter and spring. The 'Stonegarden' vineyard (one of the oldest vineyards in Springton let alone greater Barossa) forms the backbone of the wine. Pendee Farm gives the tropical fruit and Kroehn brings all the lime/citrus. The long cool Indian Summer of 2018 helped produce a wine that will age with grace. There are typical southern Eden Valley citrus characters of lemon, lime and grapefruit together with a long, chalky and mineral finish. Drink with oysters & wild celebrations.
