The cool climate and unique geology of the Eden Valley produces Riesling of distinctive character which rewards aging. The wine shows gentle spice and rose-petal aromas with intense fruit and citrus flavours. This wine is exclusively from the same 4 ha Eden Valley vineyard Mountadam has used since 2006.

Expert Reviews

Classic lifted lemon zest and mineral bouquet, offset by anise; the palate is lively and fresh, textured and finishing with grip and presence; almost big boned for young Eden Valley riesling, yet also fresh and long.

Rating 91 - Drink by 2018 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion(DEC/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


This dry young wine shows an intense citrus core enveloped in delicate nuances of cloves and rose petals. With time, these qualities will be transformed into classic toast and virgin olive characters.

Cellaring Potential

This wine will have at least a 10 year aging window.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Established in 1972 as one of Australia's pioneer Chardonnay producers, Mountadam was founded by the late David Wynn, without question one of the most significant contributors to the Australian wine industry and an important part of the Mountadam story.

Amongst his many achievements, David Wynn is credited with the invention of the wine cask; he founded Wynn's Coonawarra Estate and transformed Coonawarra reds during the 1960s and '70s; he was the first to establish a contour planted vineyard (Modbury, SA), the first to plant Riesling in Coonawarra, and was a passionate advocate of regionality.

In selecting the land for the Mountadam vineyard, Wynn was the first to recognise the potential of a cool, elevated site to produce wines of great elegance and structure, and chose an area high above the Eden Valley, which he named High Eden. At 550m above sea level, Mountadam is in fact the most elevated vineyard in South Australia.

He was awarded the prestigious Maurice O’Shea trophy in 1993.

David’s son Adam, after whom Mountadam was named, took over as winemaker in 1984, and subsequently sold the business (2002) in its entirety to French luxury goods giant, LVMH.

Mountadam returned to private ownership in 2006, with the acquisition by South Australian farmer and accountant David Brown, who has made significant investment in vineyard improvement and expansion.

Winemaking is managed by Con Moshos, who has a distinguished 23-year career making fine wines at Petaluma.
