St Petri's Eden Valley Riesling need not be the last; but first glass you have. A true expression of Riesling procured from the Eden Valley in all it's fruitful glory. Lovely chilled sipping on one's own, with friends or almost any dish and a second glass.
This Eden Valley Riesling is grown by vigneron Michael Mason. Only 1,053 dozen produced.
Pale yellow gold with flashes of an early spring's verdancy. Honeysuckle blossom and freshly crushed aromatics atop the smell of fresh rain falling on a citrus grove at dawn.
Lithesome fresh-water and faintly tart lemon flavours begin before fuller and deeper core of citrus takes over the middle palate. There’s ample fruit purity here, albeit this delicate white wine is a reassuring 11.5% ABV.
Taut straight-backed and more formal acidity takes over at the palate's to bring the wine to a clean and bright finish. Serve well-chilled with cured fish dishes or pates and simple terrines. Ryebread with caraway seeds and too much unsalted butter makes it sing.
