A dry Riesling with hints of lime blossom and elderflower. Steely with an uplifting peppery finish.
Located in Murrumbateman in the Canberra Wine District, boutique winery Eden Road was established in 2008 by businessman Chris Coffman. It made an immediate and stunning impact by winning the ‘Jimmy Watson Award’ for its first vintage of The Long Road Shiraz (2008), Australia’s most prized wine accolade. These elegant and refined wines are produced from some of Australia's highest vineyards in the emerging region of Australia's 'High Country'. The unique combination of altitude and some of the world's oldest soils, which were formed over 400 million years ago, has resulted in a highly prized collection of original and exciting wines. New winemaker Celine Rousseau has devoted 17 years to working in the 'High Country' and has developed a strong understanding and passion for these cool climate vineyards and their wines.
Eden Road works towards natural management in the vineyards with minimum intervention in terms of spraying, but hard work in terms of manually tending the vines and managing the soils. They follow organic viticulture where possible and all vines are hand-picked. This Riesling was planted 21 years ago in a vineyard north of Murrumbateman at 650 metres above sea level. All vines are a Geisenheim clone, grown in a decomposed granite soil.
The fruit was hand picked and gently whole-bunch pressed into tank and allowed to settle for 24 hours. The juice was then simply racked and fermented with an aromatic yeast at 18°C until dry.
A dry Riesling with hints of lime blossom and elderflower. Beautiful and soft but with an uplifting yet dry finish.
Perfect with sushi and crunchy fresh Thai influenced salads.
