The rocky outcrops and generally shallow soils make grape growing a challenge, it demands diligence to achieve Riesling wines of stature. The St Hallett philosophy is tried and true, take minimum intervention but give maximum attention. Each vineyard is separately vinified for a month, ferments are kept cool to retain the delicate Riesling fruit characters. Upon completion, batches are fined and individual parcels are assessed, the best components are identified and assembled into the finished wine.
Light luminescent straw hue. A pretty nose with hints of rose petal and citrus blossom, the fresh lime notes expected of fine Eden Valley Riesling. A palate of remarkable elegance and harmony, aromatic citrus flavours are carried on a silky textural mouthfeel, lined with fruit sherbet flavours. The soft lime acidity is very approachable, even as a young wine, a Riesling of persistence and superb length.
