If there was ever (in my book) a true king of the whites, it is Eden Valley Riesling! The fruit from Mick's block is always a revelation. True to type this Eden Valley Riesling is chock full of big limes and lemons, with hints of ruby grapefruit and marmalade. Maybe it's the soil, maybe the clone... I don't really mind which, because the fruit is always awesome!

Upfront toasty developed notes weaving around lemons and limes supported by lifted perfume of lemon thyme jasmine and dry summer grasses with hints of juniper and aromatic dried herbs
Firm crisp and juicy with Lovely toast complexity & beautiful balancing acid that gently grips the cheeks. Combination of assertive citrus melded with ripe limes and clear lemon countered against hints of dried herbal leaves and yeast complexity.
