The Portrait range embodies the original promise made to the grape growers to make wine that paints a portrait of our home, the Barossa Valley – to showcase the region with this delicious range of wines. This Eden Valley Riesling is delicious in its youth, it lends itself to drinking upon release but can also benefit from up to ten years cellaring.


Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was picked early, crushed, chilled and the juice immediately separated from the skins to enhance delicacy. Following cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was clarified and bottled.
Production
A temperamental spring of 2019, followed by a hot & dry summer saw yields in the Barossa well below the 10-year average for vintage 2020. Fortunately mild weather in the lead up to harvest allowed for beautiful, expressive Riesling with a high natural acidity to shine. Reduced yields meant ripening came on quickly, with Eden Valley Riesling harvested towards the end of February. Cool nights during the harvest period, allowed the fruit to be picked at its absolute optimum.
