96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
Last year was the first vintage of the ‘Zenit’, the German word for zenith. This was originally made as John and Belinda’s wedding wine, but now it is made as a wine that they believe best represents the vintage. John and Belinda assess each individual vineyard block to make the best assemblage possible. This year’s blend is 70% Eden Valley and 30% Clare Valley.
“Representing the best fruit of the season, this riesling is made from grapes sourced from the Eden and Clare Valleys, blended in a 70/30 proportion, to create a long-term cellaring wine. Pristine floral and citrus scents, and a long, fine, intense palate. Stunning” – 95 Points – Toni Paterson, The Real Review
“70% of the fruit comes from the Eden Valley, 30% from the Clare Valley. The first release of Zenit (German for zenith), its delicacy belies its power, such is its purity and balance. It is bone dry, but leaves plenty of flavour in the mouth after it has been swallowed.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
