The Jellicoe vineyard lies high up in the Eden Valley at around 475 metres above sea level. The low-yielding, 30-year-old Riesling vines are planted on the lean, rocky yellow podzolic soils common to the region. The cool climate perfectly accentuates the classic Riesling aromas and flavours that have made the Eden Valley world famous.
The wine is pale straw in colour with a lime green tinge. It has a fabulous aroma of nectarine, green tea, Granny Smith apple, lemon peel and citrus blossom. It has a finely textured palate that is brilliantly focused and linear. The wine offers pristine fruit flavours and bright acidity, leading to a superbly long mouth-watering finish. Wonderfully poised for a graceful development to 2035.
