Taste Description

Colour
Light straw with green hues.

Nose
Instantly recognisable – ostentatiously trademark Eden Valley Riesling.
Rose petal and white flower scents arise, reverently accompanied by a citrusy splash (lemon/lime), and subtle hints of kiwi fruit and gooseberry.
Additional curiosity invoked – exotically prompted by snow pea tendrils, snapped dandelion stems, and almond blossom.
Easier-recognised talc-like ‘minerality’ to close.

Palate
Citrus to the forefront: lemon-drops, fresh green lime-juice and grated lime-zest invigorate; an uplifting lemonsorbet freshness and vitality enthral.
Fruit ripeness is balanced by clean, zesty acidity, with a brave phenolic grip inducing a memorable finish.

情况说明

Origin: Eden Valley, South Australia.

Maturation: Three months in stainless steel.

Variety: Riesling.

Vintage Conditions

The start of the growing season was about one week late with budburst and shoot growth relatively even across the region. Flowering started in October and lasted about one week. Spring and summer were very dry with rainfall well below average, which stretched depleted water resources.

The mild summer with a lack of heat waves ensured the fruit was able to ripen evenly and develop desirable flavours without the threat of stressful heat events. The Woodbury Vineyard, from which fruit for this vintage release was sourced, stood out as a regional highlight.

产年历史

Bin 51 was created in the 1990s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program.  The first vintage in 1999 was labelled Eden Valley Reserve Bin Riesling. 

The evolution of Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling opens another chapter in a long history of Penfolds involvement in winemaking from this variety.
