Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Wine Companion 2010


The Eden Valley area of the Barossa is renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest Riesling, as the cooler climate and higher rainfall provide ideal conditions for Riesling. The fruit for this wine is sourced from 30 year old vines in the Thorn Family Eden Valley Vineyard. The 2010 vintage has proven excellent for aromatic varieties from cooler wine regions, with an even ripening period allowing the fruit to develop delicate aromatic characters while maintaining fine acidity. The fruit was harvested in the cool of night to retain true Riesling varietal characters.
