About Winery and Wines
A Boutique Winery passionately handcrafting Estate grown wines from their low yield blocks on the southern boundary of South Australia's glorious Eden Valley. Old growth, dry grown & sustainably managed amidst native regeneration zones & plantations, Edenmae is quite the beauty!
With Eden Valley sitting boldly between the rich terrior of the Barossa Valley to the North & the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills to the South - Edenmae's crisp Riesling & aromatic Pinot grow surprisingly well alongside their spicy Shiraz & earthy Cabernet.
Each year their Riesling is the first variety ready for harvest. Early in the morning, typically around March Edenmae bring a large crew in to hand pick the fruit. By days end, the fruit is transported to a purpose built facility in the Barossa for whole bunch pressing, while the crew sit back for some cold beer on the lawns. Whole bunch pressing ensures the delicate crisp style adored by all... The resulting juice is then transferred to cold storage for fermentation & bottled as early as August, ready for summer drinking! She's always typical of an Eden Valley Riesling - showing powerful citrus tones, embracing vanilla in maturity.
2013 saw Edenmae's Riesling juice split 50/50 to allow production of their first Sparkling Riesling, via Traditional Method! She should be ready for release around mid 2016, after two full years on lees.
Edenmae's Mixed Farming Property of 88 acres, studded with old Gums, comprises 30 acres under vine (Riesling, Shiraz, Pinot
