The coldest recorded place in South Australia most days is Mount Crawford in the Eden Valley; great news for premium quality white grapes. Consider also that the vineyard has a superb aspect and is in the best part of one of Australia’s greatest white wine producing regions and you have the basis for crafting some of Australia’s finest white wines.
“The high altitude cooler climes of the Eden Valley are ideal for riesling. This is typically minerally with a little lemon-scented blossom in there. The palate is still restrained but approachable with a terrific natural acidity sustaining the finish. Excellent wine for the shorter term.”
