Created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling captures the attributes of Eden Valley.
The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces Riesling with great ?nesse, elegance with a capacity for long term cellaring. South Australia has gained
worldwide recognition for producing de?nitive world-class Riesling, with the Eden Valley at the very head of the ?eld. In their youth, the wines possess focused apple/lime aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity, contributing signi?cantly to the palate texture and ?avour. The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens a new chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.

The 2013 Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling has very pretty scents of orange blossom and jasmine adorning an attractive core of limes and acacia honey. Dry, light-bodied and very clean on the palate, it has a long, citrus finish. Approachable now, there were only 554 bottles produced. Drink it now to 2020+.

Definitive Eden Valley Riesling!
Want ?orals, look no further……spicy jasmine, mandarin blossom and underlying whiffs of French marigold amongst perfumed bath salts and an intriguing wet slate minerality. Let’s not forget the lime zest!
Citrus bursts with lime juice aplenty! Fine, long and linear natural acid encompassing the entire length of the palate – talc, slate, mineral – brilliant! One for the ages - classic Australian bone dry Riesling. Classic Eden Valley!
