The Ashmead family is extremely passionate about producing exemplary Riesling from Eden Valley. Elderton now celebrates the commitment to making dry Riesling, with this being our 33rd vintage. The Ashmead family believes Riesling is the standout white grape from our appellation and is excited to release the 2019 vintage.

Whilst Elderton has typically been recognised for our robust red varietals such as Shiraz and Cabernet, this Eden Valley Riesling has, in itself, built an enviable pedigree. The 2007 vintage won the trophy for the ‘Best Current Vintage Riesling’ at the 2007 International Riesling Challenge, with the 2008 vintage following up with a gold medal and trophy for ‘Best Dry White Varietal’ at the 2008 Perth Royal Wine Show. The 2010 vintage was named in the top 5 in the 2010 Winestate Wine of the Year and the 2012 vintage won a gold medal at the 2012 International Riesling Challenge. The 2019 vintage won a gold medal at the 2019 Barossa Wine Show.

The Eden Valley sub-appellation of the Barossa varies tremendously in climatic conditions and soils from that of the Barossa Valley floor. The climate is cooler and wetter and the soils tend to be skeletal and minerally, which is a major determinant in growing some of Australia’s, and indeed the world’s, best Riesling.

Winemakers CommentsThis Riesling has been sourced from an old vineyard which neighbours the township of Craneford, allowing us to produce a vibrant, classic example of Eden Valley Riesling. Richard Langford
