Overview

The popularity of Australian wine is built on the stewardship of its winemaking forefathers who identified a shortlist of ideal climates and soils required for premium vineyards to thrive. Today, McGuigan Wines offers wine lovers its very own Short List, each wine showcasing a celebrated wine variety and the premium wine region from which it has established its distinguished reputation.

The 2019 vintage in the Eden Valley was dry and mild. A few hot days occurred, however, they were early enough in the season not to harm the fruit. The drier summer kept the chance of disease very low and the canopies were very balanced and healthy ensuring optimum fruit concentration and acid retention in the wine. This delivered a vibrant and crisp Riesling with exceptional citrus fruit flavours.

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night then was pressed off skins immediately. Once the juice was clarified, yeast was introduced. The ferment went for 3 weeks at temperatures between 12-14 degrees to retain the delicate flavours and aromas of the fruit. Once ferment was over, the wine was stabilised and clarified before bottling.
