  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Harvest of the 1968 planted Riesling occurred during the early morning of 20th March 2018. The grapes were tipped directly into the press and only the free run component was used to make this wine. Fermentation was carried out with a commercial Riesling specific strain of yeast. Minimal fining and filtration was used in preparation for bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Pale in colour with a green hue. The wine has lifted aromas of lemon and jasmine flowers. An underlying dried herb character adds to the wines allure. The palate shows all the hallmarks of an Eden Valley Riesling. It has lashings of lemon juice characters throughout. More subtle characters of dried herbs and jasmine flowers add to the complexity of the wine. The wine is well structured with soft lively acid carrying through-out the palate and giving the wine long persistence.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Mountadam was first setup in 1972 by the late David Wynn, a pioneer of the wine industry an founder of Wynns Coonawarra Estate. Wynn made the winery famous on the back of superb cool climate wines, supported by his son Adam (who the winery is named after). Adam held onto the winery until 2002 when it was sold to luxury goods business LVMH. The winery returned to family hands again in 2006 when it was purchased by South Australian farmer and accountant David Brown and his wife Jenni. In late 2015 the Browns acquired the second High Eden vineyard established by Wynn. The two vineyards are dissected by High Eden road. The Brown family are keen to continue Wynn's vision to produce wines of elegance and structure. A focus on sustainable low input viticulture will guarentee the success of the vineyards into the future. From 2015, Helen McCarthy has steered the ship as Chief Winemaker.

    Exceptional riesling! Bravo! A seam of transparent, juicy acidity transports yuzu spice, grapefruit pulp, nashi gelato and lemon drop flavours long. Mellifluous. Graceful. A sophisticated spellbinding wine. Fresh, but nothing tangy, nor hard.
