"From two Eden Valley vineyards: 44yo vines at Craneford, the other at High Eden, both hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed." James Halliday
"Classic Eden stuff here" Gary Walsh
"This is quite the classic release" Angus Hughson
"This is a pristine varietal wine that shows the classic floral/lime aromas of Eden Valley. It’s a dry style that’s crammed with flavour and built on a long acid line. Delightful drinking now, but will cellar. ($25.00) ★★★★★" 2021 Winewise Small Vigneron Awards.
"Classic Eden stuff here. Lemon/lime, flowers, stony things. It’s tight, pure-feeling, has crunch and gentle chalky grip, and a long zesty finish with slightly juicy citrus flavours. In short, it’s very good. Rating: 94 Points. Gary Walsh. The Winefront.
"The 2021 Eden Valley vintage rolls on and it is fantastic to see a return to form to the finer riesling style that Eden Valley does so well. This is quite the classic release – its seems at first a picture of restraint but then that understated power unfurls to whack you between the eyes. Super pale in colour before roses lime, pear and bath salt aromas – all tight and focussed. The palate then carries quite a punch – a powerful core of stony, citrus fruits plus fresh yet silky acidity which drives a long and thirst-quenching finish. Delicious and ready to drink now but will sing for a while yet." Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
Two Eden Valley Riesling vineyards contributed to the 2019 Freya blend. The Cranes Range vineyard which is just over 50% of the blend is situated in the cooler Craneford section of Eden Valley and has a predominate east-west row orientation. The second vineyard which is just under 50% of the blend is from the Petney vineyard situated in the higher altitude High-Eden sub-region. These vineyards were all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning across 6 different picking dates and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed.
