The wine is green and vibrant in appearance, with aromas of zesty lemon and grapefruit. An intense and generous palate, with lively citrus fruit and hints of talc. The wine finishes clean and dry with refreshing, long acidity. As is the case with all great Eden Valley Rieslings, mesh will age gracefully and reliably into a mature wine under the Stelvin closure.
Perfect with natural oysters, or a fresh rocket and pomegranate salad.
The 2017 growing season started with a wet winter and spring, filling the soils with moisture and getting the vines off to a good start. Spring and early summer temperatures were mild, resulting in a long and even ripening period. These ideal conditions for grape growing allowed us to make optimal picking decisions. The warm and dry days during late summer and autumn, combined with cool nights, has produced pristine fruit flavours and great acid retention in Eden Valley.
