Description

St John’s Road Peace of Eden Riesling 2017

Where is your sanctuary? Your unspoilt paradise? Your state of great happiness? Where do you feel safe? Loved? At peace? Is it in nature? Is it at home? Surrounded by friends and family? With everything in abundance? With every need met? Where’s your Peace of Eden? For us, it’s this bottle of wine with John Legend’s ‘Written in the stars’ playing in the background.

Pale straw with gold flecks. Perfumed and delicate; floral/lemon blossom, mineral lime citrus. Fine but powerful: lively and zesty. Showing great ‘Riesling’ purity and beautiful balance. Fresh lemon-lime citrus, regional minerality with a long, mouthwatering finish.  Perfect for immediate consumption, or cellar for 5 – 10 years.

The peace and tranquillity of the cool climate Eden Valley is ideally suited to yielding the clean, pure flavours of Riesling. Their approach of minimal intervention enables the true characteristics of each vintage and the vines to speak for itself.

The ’16-17 growing season reminded many locals of seasons of years past. Winter rains were excellent (>800 mm), and dry creeks were at capacity. Whilst not especially cool during the early growing season, the wet soils delayed budburst by more than a month compared to the previous year. Summer was also characterised by a lack of extreme heat spikes, so the vineyards remained virtually free of any sunburnt berries, keeping the phenolics in the skins low and making the flavours from the light pressing fractions very useful in the cuvee.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

2017 Peace of Eden Riesling: 92 points – Halliday Wine Companion

The character and quality of this wine only become apparent on the finish and aftertaste, when the wheels of the poker machine stop spinning and the coins cascade into the tray. Give the rich citrus lemon, lime and mandarin fruits a couple of years and you’ll have a wine fit for any dish or conversation you choose.

2017 Peace of Eden Riesling: 92 points – Campbell Mattinson – The Wine Front

“Grown mostly on 39-year-old vines in the Flaxman’s Valley area of the Eden Valley. It feels settled, composed and at-ease with itself, but it doesn’t lack tension and it has all the finish you could hope for. It drinks well now but you get the feeling that its best will be in the medium term. Talc, florals, spices and then lime and red apple. There’s a bit of ‘body’ to this. A softness too. It will find friends easily.”

2017 Peace of Eden Riesling: 94+ points – Kim Brebach – BWU20

“Quite different from the classic, crisp and delicate 2016. More forward, bigger and richer, and not as aromatic as some of the 2017s from SA. Give it a few months to settle down, and it’ll be great with food. 94+ points. BUY.”

2017 Peace of Eden Riesling: Dan Traucki – Wine Assist

“Gorgeous, with oodles of citrus on the bouquet- limes and lemons, crisp zingy citrus laden palate, a classical E.V. style Riesling that lingers ever so well. A REAL KEEPER”
