Sons of Eden Freya Riesling 2019

Biases are always better when they are put up front … Well, I really don’t like sweet wines, and sadly a lot of Rieslings are sweet … Not all though. I first tasted the 2018 vintage of this wine and enjoyed it. I’ve also had some Alsace ones that are dry and enjoyed them as well. this wine is pale straw in color with a honey suckle, floral nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some beautiful vibrant fruit, nice honey suckle and lime notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some rich floral notes, crisp acidity, lovely dryness and minerality. This is a beautiful Riesling and would be super food friendly with lots of ability to hold it’s own. Be careful not to serve this too cold unless your intentionally trying to soften it. I would give this a solid 88. We paired it with pan friend pickerel and it went perfectly. Total yum … from the LCBO web site, check stock:

Sons of Eden Freya Riesling 2019 from LCBO

From two Eden Valley vineyards: 44yo vines at Craneford, the other at High Eden, both hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. Intense, pure lime/lemon fruit hits the bullseye, juicy yet crisp/crunchy acidity on a long palate. Drink by: 2032. Special Value. Score – 96. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Aug. 1, 2020)
