Bursting with lemon, melon and lime aromas with a touch of lavender undertone. A refreshing and bright palate with lovely mid-palate flesh, finishing with zest and crunchy acidity. A delicious wine, approachable upon release this wine will also mature very well for many years to come.

There are three Eden Valley Riesling Vineyards that contribute to the 2019 Freya blend. Two are situated within the cooler section of Eden Valley, we refer to as the Craneford sub-region at 430m and 460m altitude respectively. The third is located in the much cooler, higher altitude High-Eden sub-region at 500m altitude. The vineyards are all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed.
100% whole-bunch and berry pressed with only the finest pressings retained. The juice was settled cold and racked clear to begin fermentation. Fermented cool at 12-14C for 3 weeks before finishing sugar-dry. To promote palate texture the wine was held on yeast lees for a further 3 months before being bottled.

Freya was the foremost goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This wine honours early German settlers who cultivated the first Riesling vine in the exemplary micro-climate of the Barossa’s Eden Valley.

James Suckling (Nick Stock)

A very finely detailed nose with lemon, lime, light pepper, crushed stones, apple blossom, flint and chalk. The palate has a superb delivery of super long, elegant yet powerful lemon, apple and grapefruit flavors. Fresh and focused finish. Concentrated. Drink or hold. Nick Stock 11th Nov 2020
