Gilbert Family Wines have their roots in the Eden Valley of South Australia, itself one of Australia's classic sources of bone-dry Riesling. This is their wine from a single vineyard.

Gilbert Family Wines have their roots in the Eden Valley of South Australia, where Joseph Gilbert was one of the first to plant grapes. They still make delicious Rieslings there under the Gilbert + Gilbert label. Now, however, the majority of their wines come from the fashionable regions of Orange and Mudgee in New South Wales. Simon Gilbert established the winery in 2004 after working for more than two decades as winemaker for some of the top producers in the area. Simon and his son, Will, specialise in cool climate wines  with a common thread of  elegance, purity and structure This winery is right at the front of Australia's new wave, making a wide range of wines which balance traditional styles and techniques with the more experimental.

This hails from a vineyard at 440 metres above sea level in  Eden Valley, the source of many of Australia's very finest Rieslings, where warm days combine with elevation to create wines of ripeness, concentration and great purity.

The destemmed grapes were very gently pressed followed by fermentation in stainless steel vat. The wine was then aged on its lees for 3 months.

Grape: Riesling

Tasting Note: A quite superb, award-winning Riesling that is starting to show the benefits of a little age. Elegant, aromatic with citrus apple and yellow plum accented with hints of smoke and minerals. Powerful viscous palate, yet bone-dry, mineral finish.

Food Match: Perfect with thai curries or grilled seabass.

Closure: Screwcap
