2012 Gun Metal Riesling
Eden Valley is recognised as one of the world's great Riesling regions. This single vineyard is recognised as one of the best Eden Valley vineyards. The specific topography and mineral profile provide ideal conditions for Riesling. Gun Metal describes the grey-coloured stone amongst the vineyard while symbolizing the steely minerality of the wine.
These grapes were hand-harvested in late-February. The natural acidity and pH provided harmony and balance and no acid was been added at any stage of production. The ripeness of the berries was approaching perfection and the resultant wine is 11.6% alcohol. Citrus, especially lime, predominates the flavor profile, while carrying the trademark powder-dry minerality that Gun Metal is renowned for. This wine illustrates our belief that great wine is expression of single vineyard and vintage.
