Created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling captures many of the attributes of Eden Valley. The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces Riesling with great finesse and elegance with a capacity for long term cellaring. South Australia has gained worldwide recognition for producing definitive world-class Riesling and Eden Valley always features. In their youth, the wines possess focused apple/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 another chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.

Autumn and winter rainfall was above the long-term average. Rain stopped abruptly in early August with nothing more than light and infrequent showers observed throughout spring. Canopy growth was resultantly halted early in the season, setting up an open canopy structure. The challenge was therefore to work towards a balanced canopy development under such dry conditions. A significant rainfall event in early January was a defining moment. This event revitalised vineyards and gave vines a muchneeded boost throughout veraison. Mild days coupled with cool nights provided consistent conditions from late-January through to March, allowing fruit to reach optimal ripeness whilst retaining natural acidity. 2015 delivered an impressive Eden Valley vintage – Riesling characterised by its balance of intensity and vibrancy.

Winery Tasting Notes


Very pale straw with lime green hues.


Noticeably youthful! An aromatic bouquet bursting with fresh floral scents of lilac, lavender and spring flowers. Lemongrass, sherbet and grated lemon-rind add an exciting citrus burst – together with wafts of scented talc and perfumed bath salts.


Elegant yet remarkably fruit-generous at the same time. Riesling! In this year of its creation and release, lemon gelati, lemon pith and pink grapefruit flavours dominate. Talc-like mouth-watering acidity provides wonderful line, length and tension.


Three months in stainless steel.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Australia's winemaking history of less than two hundred years is brief by European measures though, like Europe, punctuated by periods of extreme success and difficult times. From the earliest winemaking days Penfolds has figured prominently and few would argue the importance of Penfolds' influence on Australia's winemaking psyche.

Without the influence of Penfolds the modern Australian wine industry would look very different indeed. Sitting comfortably outside of fad and fashion, Penfolds has taken Australian wine to the world on a grand stage and forged a reputation for quality that is without peer.

Penfolds' reputation for making wines of provenance and cellaring potential might suggest a mantle of tradition and formality is the preferred attire of a company with so much history to defend. But to label Penfolds as simply an established and conventional winemaker, would be to confuse tradition with consideration and to overlook the innovative spirit that has driven Penfolds since its foundation, and continues to find expression in modern times.

If there is anything traditional about Penfolds, it is the practice of constantly reviewing the wines it already does well, and continuously evolving and refining styles as vineyards mature and access to ever older and more varied vineyard sites improves.
