So Great - Let Us Say Thanks
Mount Eagle Eden Valley Riesling 2017
Region: Eden Valley, SA
As you would expect the owners of historical properties who also have valuable vineyards are very proud of their reputation. So it Rieslings like this Mount Eagle are so intense with tightly, compacted flavour that explodes as you taste that no matter how long you have been drinking wine, you will stop and pause to say, how lucky we are, to have such pleasure.
The Murray River flows slowly west across the flat plains and then turns abruptly towards the sea as a bit further west the hills and ranges of Adelaidean-Mount Lofty Range rise dramatically barring entry.
Within this range is the first of the great premium regions of South Australia, the Eden Valley, which in turn forms the protective rim around the golden jewel of the Barossa Valley.
The Eden Valley is diverse and complex with vineyards from 300 metres to 600 metres. So expect diversity of flavour plus it’s about tiny pockets of vineyards not a continuous sweep. From one such tiny pocket came this sensational Mount Eagle.
