The Details

Tasting Note The wine is green and vibrant in appearance, with zesty lemon and grapefruit aromas. The palate is intense and generous, with lively lime, citrus flavours. The wine finishes dry with refreshing, long acidity. As is the case with all great Eden Valley Rieslings, mesh will age gracefully into a mature wine.
Best Enjoyed With Perfect with natural oysters, or a rocket, pecan and pomegranate salad.
Treatment Clare Valley’s Jeffrey Grosset and Eden Valley’s Robert Hill-Smith work together each vintage before taking their chosen grapes – Jeffrey’s in the blue buckets and Robert’s in the yellow - and parting ways to crush and ferment the fruit at different locations. Debate follows, as the juice is assessed and the final, final, final blend is agreed upon. Each component, nearly identical at the start, undergoes a different conversion into wine, reflecting the personal differences of both men.

Accolades

Elegant, dry and crisp style
This has very fresh peach and nectarine, as well as fresh citrus blossom. Plenty of florals here. The palate has elegant, dry and crisp style with good depth and length. Such pure, dry lemon here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

...this outstanding '21 vintage will knock your socks off.
The result of combining the knowledge and skills of Jeffrey Grosset and Robert Hill Smith, guys who know a thing or two about riesling. The 2020 was very good, but this one from this outstanding '21 vintage will knock your socks off. It's a powerful and intense riesling with more precision and power through the palate. Has a distinctive talcy, lime character of Eden Valley. It's all there to support further ageing.

High class Eden Valley expression
Pale lemon to straw hue with green highlights. High class Eden Valley expression with stony lime, grapefruit and white blossom. Potent and intense with strong lines and a dry structure. Has enough generosity of fruit for now and more than enough bracing acidity for plenty of cellar time.
