Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse


Eden Hall Grüner Veltliner

2022 Grüner Veltliner


Out of stock

We only vinify Grüner Veltliner when the vintage demands it, and 2022 was a belter that left us in no doubt. The wine is pale yellow with a green hue showing baked pear and subtle white pepper on the nose. The palate reveals stone fruit of just ripe nectarine and white peach. A wine of subtle texture with a clean, crisp, mineral finish. Chill and drink now, but will age gracefully.

Winter rainfall in 2021 was near average for the second year running so that again soils filled to saturation point. Indeed there were follow up rains in October and November which meant that we did not have to tap into the limited reserves in our dam until December. An extreme weather event on 28 October, including hail, caused damage across the Barossa and Eden Valley, but somehow we were largely spared. Frost events had less impact compared to previous years and late flowering avoided the windier conditions leading to good fruit set. The summer months were mild with welcome rain in late January providing ideal ripening
conditions. Humid and cool conditions leading into vintage promoted patches of botrytis infection in Block 8 Riesling – this was used to our advantage in making a sweet wine.
Overall, vintage was well paced starting on 9 March with Riesling from block 8 and finishing on the 3 May with Cabernet Sauvignon from block 6.
The 2022 vintage delivered well balanced yields and is a step up in quality from
its highly credentialed predecessor.
