A stunning classic from the ancient planted Eden Valley region - lime on the rocks!

The nose classically expresses the vineyard... it's like having a fresh lime in your hand that you crush gently over minerals... literally lime on the rocks!! The palate is bright, zingy, singing with natural acidity and really textural. It reflects the vineyard with its fine sandy texture with really bright, white textural fruit. Just a cracking Eden Valley Riesling. Dry, textural, limey - everything you want from an Aussie Riesling. It finishes lean, fresh, linear, crisp, textural (have you noticed how textural it is yet?!), fine, brittle and clean.

We are very proud to be associated with Magpie Estate of the Barossa Valley – for our first proper foray into the Barossa we could not have been associated with a more compelling producer. Magpie Estate is a joint venture, which began in 1993, between famous Barossa winemaker Rolf Binder and English wine merchant Noel Young. Both Rolf and Noel have a passion for Rhone varietals. The fruit comes from 15 long-favoured sites in the premium northern Barossa, drawing on Rolf’s deep understanding of the area. Noel then sneaks out into the night in a rubber catsuit and steals all the best fruit from these growers. The labels celebrate a superstitious theme, saluting the magpie, and we count ourselves lucky indeed to have them aboard.

Eden Valley Riesling is prized for its vibrancy, purity and longevity and has produced many of Australia’s greatest Rieslings. The fruit for Rag & Bone is sourced from Binder’s single vineyard, high up on the Eastern side of Eden Valley. Warm days and cool nights ensure that the grapes develop ripe, intense fruit flavours whilst retaining appealing zing and acidity. The fruit was delivered to the winery immediately after harvesting in the cool hours of the morning, then processed very gently through our tank press. Free run and pressing portions were determined by Christa, using her vast experience with this variety. A Ratafia style wine was made from the pressings and the free run juice was used to make this wine. The juice was cold settled and 3 days later the clear juice was transferred into fermentation tanks. Bottling took place in the middle of June.

Well suited to seafood dishes, spicy cuisine and anytime in the company of those who enjoy a quality riesling! Try chilli prawns, green Thai curry, fish and chicken laksa (with chilli, coconut, ginger and lime).
