With average yields and a mild to warm summer lead up, ensured a perfect midMarch Riesling harvest. Eden Valley enjoyed fine, dry conditions with warm days and cool evenings throughout the ripening and harvest period. These climatic conditions ensured a balanced ripening, perfect for flavour development and for retention of high natural acidity.
There are three Eden Valley Riesling Vineyards that contribute to the 2018 Freya blend. Two are situated within the cooler sections of Eden Valley and have eastwest row orientations. While the third is located in the much cooler, higher altitude High-Eden sub-region. The vineyards are all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed.
100% whole-bunch and berry pressed with only the finest pressings retained. The juice was settled cold and racked clear to begin fermentation. Fermented cool at 12-14C for 3 weeks before finishing sugar-dry. To promote palate texture the wine was held on yeast lees for a further 3 months before being bottled.
93 James Halliday - Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed. The citrus and lime blossom bouquet leads into a wonderfully expressive palate, with Roses lime juice flavours filling all the senses. Fruit-sweet until the finish, when crisp acidity dries the mouthfeel.
