Powell & Son Eden Valley Riesling 2018


"It displays beautiful aromas typical of Eden Valley Riesling: lemon rind, floral perfumes, honeysuckle and crushed stones, with a fresh palate enlivened by a strong acid backbone which draws out into a long steely finish." - Jancis Robinson

Details

The Powell & Son Eden Valley Riesling emanates from a single site in the high Flaxman’s Valley, 460 metres above sea level. The five acre vineyard showcases dry grown, rod and spur pruned Riesling vines now over eighty years old. Grapes are hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, cold settled and fermented dry prior to cold stabilisation and bottling. This approach ensures a clear expression of the great vineyard from which the wine originates.

“White flowers and stone fruits predominate the nose, accompanied by vintage-typical bath salt character. Hints of lavender and lime juice are found, underscored by a fresh wet stone minerality. The palate is rounded, carried through by a fine acid line. Flavours of juicy white apple and lime pith are followed through with grapefruity, zesty acid-derived flavours to carry through to the finish.”
