Poonawatta Estate Riesling is delicate and floral, underpinned by notes of lime, apple and wild herb aromas, and subtle musk notes.
The Eden is produced from a single vineyard of two hectares established in 1972.These old vines cling to the poorest soils on the Poonawatta property; the lean environment keeping the yields low and the flavours concentrated.
By using only the free run juice we aim to ensure The Eden displays the purity of the Riesling variety and the Eden Valley region.
A boutique producer of hand crafted artisan wines, Poonawatta is about authenticity and a sense of place; with limited production and a philosophy and passion that strives to attain the best from every vintage, while meeting our environmental obligations through a commitment to sustainability and responsible guardianship.
The Riesling vineyard (The Eden) was established in the early 1970s to capitalise on Eden Valley’s ideal climate for this premier variety, and another small Shiraz vineyard (The Cuttings) was established in the mid 1980s from cuttings taken from the original 1880 vines.
Poonawatta Estate is situated in South Australia’s prestigious Eden Valley region. Located east of the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley forms part of the Barossa Ranges, and is one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions, famous for its ability to produce wines of great elegance and finesse- in particular its stunning Shiraz and delicate Rieslings. Eden Valley falls under the Barossa Valley G.I. classification.
