K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The Powell & Son Eden Valley Riesling emanates from a single site in the high Flaxman’s Valley, 460 metres above sea level. The five acre vineyard showcases dry grown, rod and spur pruned Riesling vines now over eighty years old. Grapes are hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, cold settled and fermented dry prior to cold stabilisation and bottling. This approach ensures a clear expression of the great vineyard from which the wine originates." 92 points Wine Front: "Pure, crisp, refreshing. Delicate and driving. Has bright fruit, fine lacy acidity, really tangy but succulent and energetic. Fragrant of florals, citrus, wet pebbles and just-ripe green apple. Really good drinking."Ive always loved Eden Valley riesling, always wanted to work with it. The vineyard needed a fair bit of work so we really worked the site, it needed some help, but it’s a beauty of a site; the vines are 85 years old", offers winemaker Dave Powell. New beginnings. Fruit is from the Steinert vineyard, which also forms the Shiraz wine that sits at the top of the Powell & Son releases at $600."

    This is wonderfully aromatic with plenty of white flowers and fresh lemon in the nose. It's a dry, lean style that has abundant lime zest, lemon, crushed stone and zingy acidity however it's more round than taut across the mid palate. The result is a deliciously fresh and easy, perfect for day drinking wine. Didn't know such gems could be found in Australia? Now you do.
