2022 Freya Eden Valley Riesling

Bright citrus-blossom, white currant and elderflower aromas dominate the bouquet. A lively and flavoursome wine with mid-palate flesh, finishing with zest and crunchy acidity. A delicious wine, which is immediately enjoyable and will mature gracefully for many years to come.

Post-harvest each Riesling block was kept separate and chilled to 6C, prior to being whole-bunch pressed with only the finest free-run juice retained. The juice was cold settled 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. The individual parcels were then blended and naturally stabilised before being bottled in late June 2022.

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 Halliday

Opens with a perfumed bouquet of white flower and citrus blossom, the palate tracking the bouquet with exemplary analysis and purity; its lime/lemon flavour base line gives it presence now and into the future.

James Suckling

A creamy riesling with sliced green apples, white peaches, grapefruits and apricot stones. Medium-bodied with a lovely creamy texture and long layers of fresh stone fruit. Turns to crushed stones.

The Winefront (Gary Walsh)

Lime rind, lime, vanilla and elderflower perfume, maybe a little lime leaf too. This is tight and crunchy, yet distinctly floral and aromatic, a little juicy stonefruit in with the mixed citrus flavours, stony and fresh, Thai basil and a fresh finish of excellent length, a lime-laced gin and tonic thing in the aftertaste. It’s very easy to like, and drink, shall we say.
