Freya was the foremost goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This wine honours early German settlers who cultivated the first Riesling vine in the exemplary micro-climate of the Barossa’s Eden Valley.
This is a really characterful example from the Sons of Eden. Alluring aromas of lime, melon and lemon-blossom are supported by a refined and fleshy mid-palate, which finishes with zest and crunchy acidity. A delicious wine, approachable upon release this wine will also mature very well for many years to come.
There are two Eden Valley Riesling Vineyards that contribute to the 2019 Freya blend. One is situated within the cooler section of Eden Valley and has an east-west row orientation. The second is located in the much cooler, higher altitude High-Eden sub-region. The vineyards are all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed. 100% whole-bunch and berry pressed with only the finest pressings retained. The juice was settled cold and racked clear to begin fermentation. Fermented cool at 12-14C for 3 weeks before finishing sugar-dry. To promote palate texture the wine was held on yeast lees for a further 3 months before being bottled.
