2016 Mystery 97 Point Eden Valley Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

It all starts in the vineyard, with this wine sourced from a famous plot high up in the Eden Valley. From there the handpicked grapes are given the classic treatment in the winery, with the (well-known) winemaker working his magic, ably assisted by one of Australia's white wine legends.

The pair have nailed the brief with this wine, with it landing a huge 97 points from one local reviewer, plus 94 points from Huon Hooke amongst others.

What has impressed everyone is this wine's length and depth, with a critic praising the 'very long aftertaste' and believing it will 'cellar superbly'.

After tasting the wine we can see what all the fuss was about - this is a stunning dry Riesling, with the length to ensure it will live for many years yet.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale green-gold straw in colour, this Riesling has a fresh and aromatic nose full of lime zest, with hints of grapefruit and an underlying minerality. The palate is full-bodied and textural, with bright and vibrant citrus, blossom & musk flavours and a creamy, lingering finish. Perfect for immediate consumption with sticky sesame grilled king prawns, or cellar for 5 - 10 years.

Alc/vol: 12.5%
