2013 Riesling


Out of stock

The 2013 Riesling is pale straw in colour and offers a fragrant floral lifted nose with hints of tropical fruits. There is generosity of fruit on the palate, dominated by fresh lime juice characters. This wine steps up to the plate comfortably following the exceptional 2012 vintage. Beautiful drinking now, but like its predecessors is built to last.

The 2013 vintage was early following a dry winter, spring and summer in the Eden Valley. Whilst January was a little cooler than average, the summer was generally hot and dry, but thankfully there were only a few heat spikes into the forties. Yields again were low across all varieties apart from Riesling which didn’t seem too fazed by the conditions, and yet again confirmed that Eden Valley is its natural home.
