This is our estate Riesling, produced from vines planted by Sue and John Holt back in 1972. These low yielding vines grow on lean sandy loam over broken rock, and are one of Eden Valley’s latest ripening vineyards. Using only free-run juice we always aim to capture the purity of the variety, and the best expression of this single vineyard site.
While the 2019 volume is down there is no loss of flavour – it is a powerhouse of fresh citrus, with a lemon-lime bouquet and hints of apple blossom and sage. The vibrant palette is awash with citrus- lime and Meyer lemon, granny smith apple with the slatey acidity driving a long finish.
