When Yalumba’s fifth generation vigneron Robert Hill Smith joined forces with Clare winemaker extraordinaire Jeffrey Grosset to create a new Eden Valley Riesling, it was clear this would be no ordinary wine.Born of occasional musings, the essence of the adventure is two of Australia's best known Riesling makers working together to elevate the status of both Riesling and South Australia’s Eden Valley. The first release was the highly acclaimed 2002 vintage.The project also offers a forum in which both winemakers can share ideas, debate and discuss. Jeffrey Grosset says the partnership offers an irresistible opportunity to create a truly unique wine. "I'm convinced that we have been able to achieve more in quality terms by working together and sharing our knowledge. The chance to contribute to the reputation of the region and the variety is very exciting and the fact that Robert and I share a passion for Riesling is, for me, what makes this project so special", he said.

Details

From the beginning of the joint adventure in 2002, two subtly different winemaking methods were agreed upon to achieve our desired outcome, that is to make a wine with a strong citrus flavour and slight mineral profile, typical of the Eden Valley region. We look for long, rich flavours with a greater emphasis on power, generosity, persistence and texture than is normally seen.The grapes are "pedantically divided" by selectively hand picking alternate rows into yellow and blue buckets on the same day. The two separate parcels are then crushed at different locations and the finished components and combinations jointly assessed post-vintage amid lively debate, to determine the final blend.Each component, whilst being close to identical at the start, undergoes a subtly different conversion into wine, reflecting the personal differences in the interpretation of the "purest or most powerful expression of variety and region".
