NOT YOUR GRANDMA'S* Eden Valley Riesling 2020Regular price $22.00 Sale price $16.50
A single Springton vineyard picked on two separate dates to capture both natural acidity/freshness and intensity of flavour. The two parcels were then cold fermented in a stainless steel tank to preserve purity of fruit then bottled with only a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide.
Floral, lemon/lime and lychee aromas are followed by intense apple, lime and orange blossom on the palate. The wine has great length of palate with the soft refreshing acidity balancing the intensity of fruit and providing the backbone to enable medium-long term cellaring if so desired.

91/100 "Bright, ripe-peach and lemon with hints of melon here, too. The palate has a very crisp, vibrant and elegant feel with intense, attractive peach flavour." – James Suckling
90/100 "Fragrant aromas of bath salts, talc, lime leaf and slate. Crunchy, pithy and lemony, and there's a lovely soft acidity that makes for a really approachable, smart glass of riesling" - Aaron Brasher, The Real Review
