Penfolds `Bin 51` Riesling 2006 (6 x 750mL), Eden Valley, SA.

Created in the 1990’s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling captures the essence of the Eden Valley Riesling style.

The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces Riesling with great complexity and capacity for long term cellaring.

South Australia is gaining worldwide recognition for producing definitive World Class Riesling, with the Eden Valley at the very head of the field. The wines show typically focussed apple and lime aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavour.

The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens new chapters in a long history of Penfolds involvement in fine winemaking from this variety.

“Eden Valley—Synonymous with ultra-fine world-class riesling—young or aged! As per the Penfolds dictum: time proven!”
