THORN EDEN VALLEY RIESLING

The Fruit

The Eden Valley area of the Barossa is renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest Riesling, as the cooler climate and higher rainfall provide ideal conditions for this variety. The 2017 vintage saw a cool and wet December, followed by January and February with warmer conditions, resulting in a very late vintage. Extended hang time on the vine combining with a wet spring and summer allowed the fruit to attain excellent flavour ripeness while maintaining good levels of natural acidity.

The Winemaking

A portion of this fruit was whole-bunch pressed to maximise the elegance of the wine and the rest of the fruit was crushed directly into a tank press with the juice drained immediately to minimise skin contact. Only the free-run juice was used and after settling for 48 hours, the juice was racked and select cultured yeasts added to begin a cool fermentation. After maturation on lees in stainless steel, the wine was racked, ready to bottle.

The Wine

The 2017 Thorn Riesling is a perfectly elegant and pristine Eden Valley Riesling with classic intense citrus and floral aromatics and racy acid lines. The lean and elegant palate bursts with flavours of sweet and tangy lemon and lime, accompanied by hints of grapefruit, elderflower tonic and orange blossom water. The palate is crisp and clean with seemingly endless length, leaving a salivation-inducing tang on the finish. The wine pairs exceptionally with seafood dishes. The acidity will temper the richness of creamy French or Germanic dishes, but would also pair beautifully with fresh sushi, stir-fries or creamy curries.
