Hand picked to capture both natural acidity/freshness and intensity of flavour, the riesling was then gently whole-bunch pressed and fermented on solids and bottled without fining with only a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide. Aromas of fresh first rainfall on slaty soil with jasmine white florals lead to a natural acidity tensioned palate, it’s dolomite/ Quartz mineral core adorned with a bounty of nutmeg, cardamon and cinnamon spiced apple, peach and feijoa fruits.

Growing conditions: In 2018 the Ahrens family’s certified organic vineyard on the outskirts of Springton in Flaxman Valley (Eden Valley’s Riesling heartland) experienced controlled ripening conditions for riesling which meant we picked earlier than 2017. All the 2018 white wines from the Eden Valley have incredible natural acidity, balance and overt aromatic impact.
