St Hallett Eden Valley Riesling has lemon blossom aromas and pristine lemon and lime flavours with touches of rose petal; all held together by spine-tingling steely acidity and a long mineral finish. The cooler Eden Valley sub-region of the Barossa is the historical home to some of Australia’s finest Rieslings.
Pristine and focussed. St Hallett Eden Valley Riesling encapsulates the classic definition of its origins. The Eden Valley sub-region is perched 250 metres above the adjacent Barossa Valley sub-region, at approximately 550 metres above sea level. This cooler Barossa sub-region is the historical home to some of Australia's finest Rieslings. The combination of warm days and very cool nights contribute to a long ripening period culminating in aromatic Riesling with taut acidity. True to Eden Valley character, St Hallett Eden Valley Riesling has lemon blossom aromas and pristine lime flavours held together by spine-tingling steely acidity and a long mineral finish.Typical of great Riesling, this wine has the pedigree, structure and acidity to develop and truly reward those with the virtue of patience.
Pale straw-green; citrus and a hint of passionfruit on the bouquet narrow into a clear stream of lime juice and slatey acidity on the bracing finish and aftertaste of the palate. The balance of the wine guarantees it will richly repay patience, even if it is only for a year or two.
