Seppeltsfield Eden Valley Riesling 2016

Slightly new livery for the wine which comes in the regional “Eden Valley” textured bottle (side note: I personally quite like the regional pride that the bottle is trying to achieve and would love to see more producers use it). The IRF scale on the back label (excellent informative tool for consumers) indicates this as into the dry spectrum.

Soft honeycomb (from fruit expression rather than sugar) with lemon barley water and lime zest. There’s a earthy, rusticity also. The minerally, almost sandy mouth feel is followed by that savoury lemon barley richness. No search party required for the Eden lime driven acidity, it signals its presence with mezzo-soprano notes rather than shrill screams. Finishing with delicate bath talc and a quiet whisper of rosewater. Quality stuff.

RRP: $22
Alc: 11.8%
