Bethany Estate Riesling 2015, Eden Valley, Australia
Crafted by fifth generation Schrapel family winemakers, this Eden Valley Riesling has a distinctive floral aroma, loads of varietal flavour, an excellent balance of natural acid and a lingering, crisp, finish.
Eden Valley is a cool climate region nestled between 400 and 600 metres above sea level and is part of the Barossa and Mount Lofty Ranges. It is rough, rocky country that belies its ability to produce wines of great delicacy and finesse. The soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock with red clay soils and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The cooler climate of the Eden Valley allows fruit to experience longer ripening periods which is perfect for flavour accumulation and intensity.
