Tim Smith Wines Eden Valley Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

2013 was a crackerjack year in the Eden Valley, possibly the best of the decade! So what better reason do you need to give riesling a whirl this summer. This wine is citrusy, crisp and zippy showing crunchy apple and lemon on the nose, whilst the palate is dry and refreshing with a nice citrus lime juicy finish. A perfect partner to sushi.

Winemaker's Notes

The fruit was hand picked so that only the finest bunches were processed, fermented cool, and bottled young to maintain freshness and purity. The wine shows classic lifted notes of citrus rind and bath salts, while the palate is focussed and linear, and finishes with a crisp, natural acid finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; a delicately elegant style, with citrus pith / rind interweaved with minerally acidity; early picking, and little retention of residual sugar has resulted in the low alcohol. Needs more time to build flavour and character, but has the balance to do so.

Pale quartz-green; made from a single vineyard planted in the 1920's and packaged in a smart custom-made bottle branded 'Eden Valley'. This is a wine of outstanding quality, with wonderful intensity and focus to its bone dry citrus/mineral palate, the lingering finish underlining its quality

From vines planted in the 1920s, this delicious riesling comes in a proprietary Eden Valley bottle with the region’s name set into the glass. Floral aromas of citrus zest, bath salts, rose petals and blossom are rather pretty. There’s nice intensity to the lime juice and minerals flavours but it’s also subtle and nuanced. It is dry and refreshing, with chalky acidity and – most importantly – well balanced. There’s good intensity on finish and it will age well, too. Food match Pork schnitzel
