The 2019 growing season in Eden Valley was challenging, but the quality remained exceptional considering the warmer summer, lower rainfall and lower yields. Wines made from the region, and in particular the Riesling variety, showed delicate floral aromas as well as good natural acidity. Riesling was again the standout variety and has proven how hardy and tolerant it is to all conditions The 2019 Peace of Eden came from three different growers in Eden Valley - the Zander ‘Quarry Block’ grapes were harvested on the 9th of March, Michael Masons Moorooloo road block harvested on the 7th of March and Jan and Terry Riley’s ‘Brandy’s and ‘Old’ Blocks were picked on the 6th of March 2019. Following harvest the grapes were immediately taken to our Barossa winery for pressing to avoid extended skin contact. Some pressings material was used to give vibrancy and flavour to the final wine. The Riesling was fermented in stainless steel tanks for approximately 40 days in cool temperatures to retain delicate aromatics. The wine did not go through malolactic fermentation to avoid overly creamy textures and to maintain freshness and juicy acidity.
