A pristine and focused wine, St Hallett's Riesling remains true to Eden Valley character. Typical of great Riesling, this wine has the pedigree, structure and acidity to develop and truly reward those with the virtue of patience.

"Light straw -green; the fragrant, flowery lemon blossom bouquet is a bright start, filled with promise, but it is the persistent intensity of the palate, strongly reminiscent of a top Rheingau riesling, that transfixes ones tastebuds. This is a terrific wine that will flourish no matter how long it gets lost in the cellar. " Rating 96 - James Halliday, Weekend Australian (NOV/2013)
"Fresh, vital and open-textured, with pretty grapefruit and pineapple notes at the core, finishing long, dry and inviting. Drink now. " Rating 89 - Harvey Steiman,Wine Spectator, (JUL/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
St Hallett Eden Valley Riesling has lemon blossom aromas and pristine lemon and lime flavours with touches of rose petal; all held together by spine-tingling steely acidity and a long mineral finish. The cooler Eden Valley sub-region of the Barossa is the historical home to some of Australia’s finest Rieslings.
A dry, crisp and refreshing Riesling such as this goes best with dishes that have bold flavours complemented by zest! Fresh oysters, sashimi, lamb korma and Thai beef salad all work well. Great with creamy cheeses such as brie. Wash down crisp fish & chips with a glass of this Riesling while watching the waves break.
