Our Jellicoe vineyard lies high up in the Eden Valley at around 475 metres above sea level. The low-yielding, 30 year old Riesling vines are planted on the lean, rocky yellow podzolic soils common to the region. The cool climate perfectly accentuates the classic Riesling aromas and flavours that have made the Eden Valley world famous.

Tasting Notes:

Vibrant lime green in colour with flashes of green the 2016 Jellicoe Riesling shows bright fruit aromas of lime and lemon with a splash of grapefruit. Hints of orange blossom, jasmine, Bickfords lime cordial and crushed quartz along with lighter notes of lemon myrtle and talc.

Perfect with BBQ scallops or King George Whiting.
