Riesling 2021 – Black Market Deal #39996
- Fresh, juicy
- Eden Valley
Oh, the accolades! That’s some ridiculous bling for a cheeky little riesling. So how did it get to this? The producer took fruit from the cooler southern end of the Eden Valley and harvested in the evening, allowing for grapes with perfect ripeness and no stress from undue heat. This leads to balance, purity and intensity in a finished wine. There’s floral notes on the nose, a chalky and minerally texture on the palate and flavours of lime and mandarin leading to bright acidity on the finish. This is quintessential Eden rizza, refreshing and vibrant, and only weighed down by the excessive bling.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Next door to the Barossa Valley lies Eden Valley, a small yet highly significant Aussie region celebrated for their signature cool climate wines and impressive history. According to our sources, the first Eden Valley vineyard was planted in the early 1840s, and today there are just over 12 local wineries, both boutique and family-owned that continue to produce, exceptional vintages, including the famous Yalumba and Henschke. Renowned for their signature riesling and shiraz, the glorious region is a heavenly picking field for A-grade fruit. It comes as no surprise that many of Australia's winemakers source their grapes from the Eden Valley.
