Rolf Binder – Eden Valley Riesling 2019

Farven er som lys halm, smagen er ret parfumeret, med uundgåelige toner af citron og lime, men også af æbler og roser. Den har en god syre, der giver en frisk og sprød smag.

Christa har evnen til at producere hvidvine med den perfekte balance mellem frugt og syre. Nyd vores Riesling, mens den er ung og frisk, eller opbevar nogle flasker i kælderen til nydelse om 10+ år.

Rating – 95 point – GOLD, drink to 2027.

Tasting Note

Eden Valley Riesling is prized for its vibrancy and longevity and the region has produced many of Australia’s great Rieslings. This is another outstanding release from Christa Deans, known worldwide for her expertise with this varietal.

THE VINEYARDS:
The fruit for this Riesling is sourced from four distinct blocks in two Eden Valley vineyards – one being white winemaker Christa’s own vineyard on the western side of the Eden Valley, with supplemental fruit from a select grower in the township of Eden Valley. Warm days and cool nights in this higher altitude sub region at 500-600M above sea level, ensure that the grapes develop ripe, intense fruit flavours while still retaining appealing acidity.

THE VINTAGE:
Wines from the Barossa and Eden Valley’s 2019 vintage will be of very high quality but of limited supply. With a very dry winter and spring; frost events in September and November disrupted bud burst and flowering; hot, dry conditions in January and February also contributed to 2019 being recorded as the lowest-yielding Barossa harvest of the past decade.

THE WINEMAKING:
The four vineyard blocks were harvested from the 12th to 22nd March and the batches of fruit were processed and fermented seperately in the winery. The resulting wines were blended together and then bottled the first week of July.

ANALYSIS:
Alc. Vol 12.5%, Acidity 7.0 g/l, pH 3.0

THE PROFILE:
As a young wine, this 2019 Riesling is delightfully aromatic, displaying delicate rose floral and musk aromas on the nose. The wine has a good acidity with vibrant lemon/lime citrus and Fuji apple flavours that linger really well on the palate.

CELLARING:
Vibrant, crisp and fresh upon release, it will also reward those who are able to wait for the wine to develop. Can be enjoyed to 2030.

REVIEWS:
This 2019 release is yet to be reviewed.
2018 EDEN VALLEY RIESLING: Rating – 95 points – GOLD, Drink to 2027
“It has just the right hit of florals, ginger spice, lemon zest and a dab of buttered toast to please. And enough freshness and lift across its gentle palate to satisfy”.
