Sourced primarily from a single, established vineyard situated at almost the highest point in the Eden Valley, well over 500m in altitude. Close to Mountadam and the old Leo Buring High Eden Vineyard, the site is an ideal expression of High Eden Riesling. Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed with only the finest free run (less than five hundred litres per tonne was used). The fermentation was very cool, at around twelve degrees, and allowed to ferment to bone dry. The absence of the influence of solids is crucial to the purity of the style.
Appearance: Pale, almost clear, with vivid green highlights.
Nose: The nose is floral and perfumed with an array of citrus fruit, lilac and lavender.
Palate: The palate is at once intense and tightly-wound with outstanding purity. As with all great Riesling, the key is the long, fine acid line and vibrant finish.
Cellaring: A enjoyable and refreshing drink now but most definitely a long term cellaring proposition.
