Eden Valley Riesling as Trent Burge would like it.

That's the gist with this sprightly young white, which is more than just a cheeky little wine - it's a very easy modern drink. 

Loaded with Riesling fruit, the acidity soft, the finish inviting and very easy going. Drink it well chilled and enjoy the flavour.

Expert Reviews

90 Points - Campbell Mattinson - The Wine FrontCheeky little riesling called Cheeky Tilly. It’s more forward than we normally see out of the Eden Valley but in drink-this-summer terms that’s not a bad thing. Bruised lime, lemon, a sorbet aspect, an aspirin-mineral combine, a juicy finish. It’s forward but it still feels delicate.

How's it taste?

Bright yellow hues with an enticing aroma of citrus and green apple. A crisp and bright palate, zinging with acidity and lemon-and- lime sunshine, this is the epitome of a ‘cheeky Riesling’ to share with loved ones. A dry Riesling with a full flavoured palate and lingering acidity. A versatile wine that can be paired with chilli and lime seafood, spicy chicken or goats chevre.

How was it made?

Around the same time that Barossa Boy Wines was launched, little Tilly, the Boy’s first child, was born. She’s a seventh generation Burge of the Barossa terroir, yet her own character is as unique as a single vintage. Fruit is sourced from the Barossa’s Eden Valley, where the cooler climate offers the slow ripening under which Riesling’s flavours really bloom. Crisp and bright, zinging with acidity and lemon-and-lime sunshine, this is the epitome of a ‘cheeky Riesling’ to share with loved ones. This Riesling is a tribute to the wild-haired, spirited girl and all her stories yet to be told. The 2019 Barossa vintage will be notable for high quality and low yields for most varieties, including Riesling from Eden Valley. The region experienced very dry Winter and Spring conditions leading into the growing season, with additional pressures of late frost in September and November. A warm, dry January and February accelerated ripening, condensing the harvest period to a very intense 5 weeks. The lack of rainfall across the region, and in particular in Eden Valley , meant the vineyards had no disease pressure and smaller canopies. The result is wines with fresh lively fruit characters and crisp acidity which display great finesse and aging potential. Winemaking A portion of the fruit for this wine is dry-grown, intensifying its Eden Valley hallmark floral and citrus characters. The fruit is handpicked and whole bunch pressed to ensure a clean crisp finish.

Who made it?

A sixth generation Barossa winemaker, our founder Trent Burge grew up in and on Barossa soil. Riding trail bikes around the vineyards, playing local cricket and footy, he had dirt under his nails and Barossa blood in his veins. The boy has grown to craft new stories in wine. Barossa Boy is his passion project; his heart worn proudly on his sleeve. Tales of generational wisdom and legendary old vines are blended with fresh perspective and a worldly, modern palate. Barossa Boy wines are devoted to the ultimate expression of the Barossa region's signature varieties and distinctive characters. Each vintage brings the anticipation of a new chapter, and the opportunity to bottle the season's tale from bud to harvest.
