Product Details

Created in the 1990’s as part of the evolving Penfolds white wine development program, Bin 51 captures many attributes of the Eden Valley locale. The region’s high altitude and cool climate induces riesling with great finesse and elegance with a capacity for long-term cellaring. South Australia has gained worldwide recognition for producing definitive world-class riesling and Eden Valley always features. In their youth, the wines possess scented floral and citrus aromas, with a mineral edge and marked natural acidity, contributing significantly to the palate texture and flavour.

 

GRAPE VARIETY Riesling

 

VINEYARD REGION Eden Valley

 

WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 11.5%, Acidity: 7.5 g/L, pH: 2.88

 

MATURATION Three months in stainless steel

 

VINTAGE CONDITIONS Winter rainfall was plentiful, ensuring optimal soil moisture profiles leading into spring. Conditions during spring and summer were significantly cooler than average with no summer heatwaves recorded. This is something of a luxury for white winemakers, allowing for an extended slow ripening period leading into an orderly harvest. The extra hang-time allowed for terrific varietal flavour and aroma development, with the retention of racy natural acidity. A tremendous vintage for riesling.

 

COLOUR Very pale with iridescent lime green hues

 

NOSE Intensely aromatic: freshly squeezed Tahitian lime juice, feijoa, lychee, potpourri, bath salts, white blossom, hints of honeydew and a suggestion of curry leaves and spearmint.

 

PALATE Mouthwatering lemon/lime citrus, lemongrass, mineral talc like acid, washed river stones, green apple skins. The finish is pristine, with a lovely sugar/acid tension.
