Introduced in 1999 (originally as Eden Valley Reserve Bin Riesling), Bin 51 captures the attributes of Eden Valley, a region that is world renowned for its riesling. The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces Riesling with great finesse, elegance with a capacity for long term cellaring.
COLOUR : Light lime green
NOSE Unashamedly Eden Valley fruits – ID’d instantly! All regional riesling markers on display. An array of florals – white spring flowers (jonquil), and hints of fresh lime. Crushed mixed-stone gravel … not quite at talc stage. Yet. Aromatically extols an undeniable purity, minerality and freshness!
PALATE Very lime – citrus driven palate augmented by just ripe Granny Smith apple, cucumber granita and traces of juniper berry. A distinct chalky acid presence noted, yet ideally balanced so as not to intrude or distract. Admittedly a wishful second guess, but no reason to suspect why this palate shouldn’t remain intact over the next decade or three! Imminently drinkable.
