Bonus copy of 2018 Halliday Wine Companion with any 12 bottles purchased of selected wines

Long regarded as one of Australia's finest Riesling makers, the Poonawatta The Eden Riesling 2016 is another classic example. This delivers incredible concentration of flavour, with the vineyard sites typical floral notes underpinned with sherbert lemon and lime, and delicate musk notes. An Eden Valley Riesling of incredible length and generous flavour and a relative bargain at this price.

"97 Points. 45yo low-yielding vines, sustainably farmed, free-run juice fermented slowly (18-22 days). A marvellous riesling, majestically perfumed, intensely lime juice-flavoured and exceptionally long. I couldn't resist the temptation to swallow half of the first sip. Just under 400 dozen made. To 2036. $26" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

"The nose is fresh and vibrant, with lifted citrus and floral notes, underpinned by a bouquet of lime, apple and hints of wild herb. The palate is lively and intense, with mouth filling zesty lime and mineral flavours supported by vibrant and balanced acidity, running through to a long and lingering sherbet lime finish. Only free run juice was used in the making of The Eden 2016 Riesling, to capture the purity of the variety. The Eden displays classic regionality and excellence that Eden Valley is renowned for." - Poonawatta Wines.
