Authentic Country Flavour and Style
Parawatta Eden Valley Riesling 2017
Region: Eden Valley, SA
The perfect expression of Eden Valley Riesling must show that long, ‘rapier’ like fine, fruit note of pure, green citric intensity which travels along the palate and never quite expires. Well this wine has it.
I spent many years in my early life as a wine merchant exploring the lanes and by-ways of France looking for the authentic country wines which was training for the greater pleasure of searching across Australia.
To still be at it and discover wines like this is where the pleasure is found. The last Parawatta Riesling was the 2013 though it sits as a gold medal curiosity in my memory as it was nor true to style, indeed it led to lively discussion with customers, and shows though what the weather can do.
We can see from the 2017 that any description must say it was a classical year meaning you will get what you expect from the Eden Valley. In many ways almost perfect and will bring joy.
