Description

Corryton Burge Kith Eden Valley Riesling is a white wine made from grapes grown in the Eden Valley, a region well-known for producing quality riesling wines. It is part of their “Kith” range of wines.

Corryton Burge takes it name from the family’s historical property, Corryton Park Homestead, which was built in 1845. It is located in the gentle hills of the the Eden Valley wine-growing region to the north of Adelaide. The Eden Valley is bounded by the Barossa Valley wine region to the west and the Adelaide Hills wine region to the south. The estate is run by sixth generation winemakers, and siblings, Trent and Amelia Burge. Both Trent and Amelia are heavily involved in running the estate. Trent is in charge of all departments and day to day operations and Amelia is involved with wine marketing and as a member of the board of management. They also both have their own wine projects: Barossa Boy Wines and Amelia Burge Wines.

The name Burge will be familiar to most Australian wine lovers; Trent’s father is Barossa Valley wine-making legend Grant Burge. When Grant Burge sold Grant Burge brand, they retained all the real estate. The grapes are source from the Burge family’s 300 hectares of vines in southern and central Barossa and Adelaide Hills with a network of twenty growers further afield in non-Barossa regions. The wines are made at the family’s Illaparra winery by the talented winemaking team of Matthew Pellew, Andrew Cockram and Trent Burge. There are three ranges of wines: the Kith, Kin and Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The grapes for the Corryton Burge Kith Eden Valley Riesling are sourced from growers in Eden Valley, the Milton Tscharke family, with whom the Burge family share a long association. The grapes are planted on an Eastern facing slope so that the fruit avoids the harsh afternoon sun. They are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and bottled early to retain fresh varietal characters.

The wine labels feature a logo of the fabled griffin. The gates of the Corryton Park Homestead are protected by a pair of statues of the mythical griffin.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Crisp apple, lemon and floral fragrances of a classic Riesling, the lively, fresh apple and citrus flavours give length with balanced acidity. A wine simply too good not to share.
