"Tim Smith; Barossa Valley red wines at their best"
Welcome to Tim Smith Wines!
The texture, complexity and delicacy of Tim Smith Wines is attributed to the consistently exceptional fruit which is sourced from individual pockets of the Barossa Valley’s oldest vineyards. These small-batch, handmade wines truly represent this world-class winemaking region.
We have two Eden Valley white wines; Eden Valley Riesling & Eden Valley Viognier. And we have the following Barossa Valley red wines; Barossa Shiraz (including a Barossa Reserve Shiraz), Barossa Mataro & Barossa Mataro Grenache Shiraz.
2012 Eden Valley Riesling
100% Eden Valley Riesling. 11.5% Alc.
From the best vintage I have seen in the Barossa in 25 years, the 2012 Eden Valley Riesling is a great follow up to the inaugural 2011 vintage. The fruit is sourced from a single site planted in the early 1920’s. This wine shows all the hallmarks of the variety: Great lifted aromas of lemon and lime oil on the nose. The palate is focused and linear, with an earthy, wet stone like extract, with citrus zest to close the finish. A slightly riper style than the 2011, it offers great current drinking.
