Overview

Colin Angas was quick to realise the potential for the Eden Valley to be an exceptional region for Riesling, and planted a vineyard on gentle slope in the 1960’s. Whilst considered a single vineyard, there are two distinct sections. The top section planted on the leanest soils and more exposed to the wind produces very tightly structured fruit with crisp, vibrant acidity. The bottom section, on deeper, more vigorous red soils produces plumper bunches of fruit that showcases more fresh aromatics and citrus zing.

Expert Reviews

Rating 95 - Campbell Mattinson Wine Companion July 2018

If you ever want to show someone just how glorious the riesling grape can be, serve them a glass of this. It's agenda-free riesling, fundamentally delicious, intense with flavour but not cutting, gorgeous at every turn, cellarworthy if you so desire but in no way is patience a prerequisite. Lime, orange blossom, a gently candied aspect, a slip of pure lemon. It's bold and it's beautiful.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma & Palate

This is a really beautiful wine, with lovely vibrant lifted lemon zest and lime cordial intermingled with mineral and talc notes on the nose. On the palate, there’s fresh lemon and lime, a dash of minerality, refreshing acidity and a long textured chalky dry finish.
