Lifted hallmark lemon and lime aromas are flickered with hints of elderflower. A bright, refreshing palate with flesh, zest and crunchy acidity. This delicious wine, approachable upon release will mature gracefully for many years to come.
The harvested Riesling was chilled to 6C for 12 hours, prior to being whole-bunch pressed with only the finest free-run juice retained. Settled cold for 7 days before being racked clear to begin fermentation. Fermented cool between 12-14C for 3 weeks and then left for 3 months on yeast lees to build palate texture. Bottled in early June 2021.
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.
Enjoy now until 2040
This is a pristine varietal wine that shows the classic floral/lime aromas of Eden Valley. It’s a dry style that’s crammed with flavour and built on a long acid line. Delightful drinking now, but will cellar. Wine Show Notes
Another strong riesling from the 2021 Eden Valley vintage, this dry and vividly fragrant riesling has aromas of sliced lemon and quartz-like minerals. The palate delivers teflon-like purity and drive. So sleek and concentrated. Drink or hold. Nick Stock, Oct 2021
