2018 Flaxman Estate Riesling Eden Valley – Fi & Col Sheppard established Flaxman Wines in 2004 when they purchased the vineyard, made the vine-change and moved across from Melbourne. The vineyard sits in the very beautiful and picturesque Eden Valley in the Barossa and includes 3 acres of Riesling, 2.5 acres of Shiraz and 1/2 acre of Semillon, all planted in 1929. Small parcels of Grenache, Mataro, Chardonnay and Cabernet are also purchased to broaden the line-up of wines on offer. The grapes are hand-picked each year and all wines (except the Riesling) are made onsite – so visitors can observe the wine-making process first hand during vintage.
Cropped at 1 tonne to the acre, making 190 dozen. Pure Eden Valley and pure Flaxman. Most will be drunk soon (and there isn’t a problem with that) BUT, if you have the patience, this wine will reward you ten fold if you can hang on to a bottle or two. Great minerality, lime and a lovely freshness. Just in time for Spring!
