Sons of Eden Cirrus Single Vineyard High Eden Riesling 2020


Cirrus; the cloud formations prevalent above the Eden Valley through Summer and Autumn.

Pale green colour, vibrant white currents, grapefruit and fresh lemon juice aromas. The palate is refined, with great intensity and freshness, finishing with a flicker of mineral texture. Released after 12 months of bottle maturation, this wine will mature for many years to come. The best example of high altitude Riesling, focused and refined, steely nervous acidity, built for the long run, only made in outstanding years.

Vintage: 2020

Variety: Riesling

Region: Eden Valley


94 Points - Tyson Seltzer, Halliday Wine Companion. "True to the 2020 season, this is a rich and powerful yet high-tensile riesling, launching out ripe and full with baked apple and kaffir lime fruit, morphing through the palate into a honed and tense finish of pure lemon and lime juice. Crystalline acidity unites seamlessly with powder-fine phenolic grip to lay out tension, structure and endurance".

93 Points - Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review. "Very much in the classic style of generations past, it’s pale and shiny, with a big varietal nose suggesting lime juice cordial, dried flowers, bakery spice and steel. Plump in texture, full-flavoured, tightly-structured and dry, it’s a wine of real concentration and personality."
