Eden Valley Riesling

2021 vintage

We believe that Eden Valley produces Riesling equal to any across the globe. Our winemaker Andrew Quin has selected three blocks of high-altitude Eden Valley Riesling with the ideal attributes to enjoy now as a crisp aromatic white, or to age and allow its brilliance to shine through.
