92 Points for 2009 Eden Valley Riesling

Campbell Mattinson of The Wine Front ( has rated the 2009 Eden Valley Riesling 92 Points and heaped praise on the wine, as shown in the comments below:

"Elderton has been making riesling from the Eden Valley for 25 years. The grapes for this wine were sourced from two vineyards.
Eden Valley to its back teeth. Ever so floral. Flavours of lime and lemon with a slatey aftertaste. Exemplary dryness. The finish almost feels grainy, it's so dry. It has 'lilt' to it too, in that the flavours swing through your mouth, rather than just bursting through to the finish. Means it has flavour as well as acid, I guess. And of course, this is part of why it feels so delicate. Lovely wine."
