As ever, this is a picture-perfect Eden Valley Riesling, driven by acidity and yet with this lovely limey fruit intensity. It's generous, as you'd imagine from a warm vintage like 2019, but yet it remains so fresh and lively too. Very easy drinking.

How's it taste?

A Riesling of substance. Full and textured, the palate opens up to layers of flavor; citrus zest with mineral talc and fresh limes. The palate is balanced with a fine steely texture supported by a backbone of crunchy acidity. The finish is long, elegant and complex.

How was it made?

From an exceptionally dry and warm vintage, this intense Riesling shows excellent concentration given the context, with superb limey intensity and a long soft finish.

Who made it?

Established in 1944, St Hallett wines have been producing Barossa Valley wines from a range of vineyard sites across the wine growing region. The winemaking team comprises of the equally passionate duo of Toby Barlow and senior winemaker Stuart Blackwell. St Hallett wines is located in Tanunda in the Barossa Valley of South Australia. The cellar door looks out over the Barossa Ranges and part of the vineyards selected for St Hallett winemaking. St Hallett uses up to 700 hectares of vines to produce the broad offering from the winemaking team. While old vine Shiraz is king, the range does flesh out with a white and red blend (Poacher’s and Gamekeepers), a Semillon and an Eden Valley Riesling. A Grenache Shiraz Touriga Nacional wine is also produced. The flagship wines are cellar worthy and show great complexity and intensity. The winery pursues a philosophy of ‘melding evolution and innovation’ seeking the best expressions of Barossa Valley fruit with an understanding of the climates and terroirs the vineyard sites occupy. Old vine, particularly Shiraz, production is revered with an emphasis on texture and integrity of flavour.
