2021 RieslingFreak No. 4 Eden Valley Riesling
The Freak's No.4 Riesling was made from selected vineyards across the Eden Valley region; predominantly the High Eden sub region of Flaxman Valley which is renown for producing delicate, elegant styles of Riesling. Selected parcels from the Springton area of Eden Valley, reputed for intense flavour and rich aromatics, add complexity to the bouquet and opulence to the palate.
Brilliant water like colour with a distinct glimmer of green to the edges. Intense lemon and lime aromatics are followed by some green apple, talc and orange rind notes. Chiselled and linear in its feel, concentrated flavours of lime, lemon and subtle orange rind overlay a wet steel and flinty mineral back drop. Crunchy acidity finishing dry and long with a zippy feel.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
This hits a new level in 2021, the finest release of this dry Eden Valley riesling to date. Aromas of sliced lemon and crushed stones with flickers of spice, too. The palate is finely detailed and has elegantly piercing lemon and ruby-grapefruit flavors that run so long and focused. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
