Created as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Reserve Bin Aged Release Eden Valley Riesling captures the essence of the mature Eden Valley Riesling style. The region's high altitude and cool climate produces Riesling of great complexity and capacity for long term cellaring.
South Australia is gaining worldwide recognition for producing a definitive Australian Riesling style, with Eden Valley courting the Clare Valley as its two finest exponents.
Light straw with gold hues.
After 5 years maturation, this Riesling from Eden Valley is incredibly fresh and youthful with only slight hints of toastiness beginning to show through. Chamomile, coriander seed and dried herbs are evident alongside aromas of freshly cut straw, lemongrass and lemon salve. There is also just a dash of lanolin waxiness typical of quality aged Riesling.
The palate, also extremely youthful, has lashings of citrus - in particular lemon - fresh lemon juice, lemon myrtle and lemon sherbet.
It’s a tight and linear wine with a chalklike phenolic grip to finish. An amazingly youthful wine from an exceptional Eden Valley vintage!
A wine to be enjoyed now or has the potential to cellar for many years to come.
