2013 Hewitson Gun Metal Riesling, Eden Valley

Eden Valley is recognized as one of the world’s great Riesling regions. The wine comes from a single vineyard whose specific topography and mineral profile provide ideal conditions for Riesling. Gun Metal describes the grey-colored stone amongst the vineyard while symbolizing the steely minerality of the wine. The nose is evocative of honey and jasmine aromas, with nuances of fresh pears and allspice. Light and refreshing on the palate, with honeyed fruit and baked apple flavors. Delicious now. Exciting aromas and flavors here of flint. Full body, a solid core of fruit and a delicious finish.
