Product Description

Sons of Eden are rising stars of the Barossa. Co-owners, Corey Ryan (“cut his teeth” as winemaker at Henschke for 10 yrs) winemaker and Simon Cowham (ex-viticulturist Yalumba) can do no wrong!

Freya was the foremost legendary Goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This single vineyard wine honours early German settlers who cultivated the Riesling vine in the exemplary micro-climate of South Australia’s Eden Valley.

From the winemakers: “With average yields and a mild to warm summer lead up, ensured a perfect mid March Riesling harvest. Eden Valley enjoyed fine, dry conditions with warm days and cool evenings throughout the ripening and harvest period. These climatic conditions ensured a balanced ripening, perfect for flavour development and for retention of high natural acidity.

There are three Eden Valley Riesling Vineyards that contribute to the 2018 Freya blend. Two are situated within the cooler sections of Eden Valley and have eastwest row orientations. While the third is located in the much cooler, higher altitude High-Eden sub-region. The vineyards are all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed.

Perfumed lemon-blossom, lime and lavender aromas are supported by fleshy midpalate flavours and Eden Valley crunchy acidity. A delicious wine, approachable upon release this wine will also mature very well for many years to come.
