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 finesse, elegance with a capacity for long term cellaring. South Australia has gained worldwide recognition for producing definitive world-class Riesling, with the Eden Valley at the very head of the field. 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 a new chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.
“When vintages like 2012 arrive we smile.”
“Could I suggest that we’ll be smiling for some years yet …”
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker
