The colour of the 2023 Tapanappa Eden Valley Riesling is pale green-yellow. Typical of Eden Valley Riesling, this Riesling has jasmine floral aromas with a hint of anise. There is more than the usual amount of lime-citrus because of the exceptionally cool growing season. The bath-powder aroma also has an edge of delicate tea rose.
The palate weight is fine and delicate and despite the late picking, almost austere, with a slight talcum dryness and a mouth-watering acid finish. The 2023 Eden Valley Riesling is reflection of the Riesling variety grown in a perfectly suited terroir of a “distinguished site” vineyard.
