An endowment of the finest vineyards, many were planted decades ago and are now very mature, provide harvests of splendid quality fruit. Eaglehawk is a perennial wine show performer, even at such an approachable tier of the Wolf Blass hierarchy, it represents one of the nation's most reliable Riesling wines.
The Wolf Blass operations are located at the epicentre of Australia's wine industry and have produced some of the nation's most highly decorated editions of Riesling. The inventory of vineyards, many are within the most splendid sub districts of the Barossa and Eden Valleys, have long been trained to deliver harvests of the finest grapes. Following de-stalking and the crush, juices are run off skins and cold settled, the clear juice is decanted off the residue before vinification. Cool temperatures are maintained in fermenters to preserve flavour and retain fresh fruit aromas. Bench appraisals ensure that only the best parcels are selected for assembling into Eaglehawk Riesling. Alcohol 12.0%
Vibrant green/ gold hues. Lifted floral and citrus aromas, delicate hints of musk, passionfruit and a touch of spice. A fresh, lively palate, lime and floral flavours with just a hint of sweetness to offset the natural citrus, well balanced acidity and a crisp, refreshing finish. Great with salad niçoise or a grill of the freshest fishes.
