Delicious wine. Has grip and energy, and a subtle come-hither personality.

About The Wine

The Sons of Eden Freya Riesling is Eden Valley Riesling at its most delicious. No mucking around, just gorgeously pure, free-run Riesling juice from good vineyards.

It comes from three different Eden Valley vineyards - all hand-picked and gently whole bunch pressed - before chilling out in stainless steel until release. The 2020 is an impressive release, tight, lithe and dart-like in its precision.

Again, it must rank amongst the country's top value Rieslings. Great drinking now and will develop beautifully in the cellar also.

About Sons of Eden

Sons of Eden is a partnership between experienced winemaker (Corey Ryan) and viticulturist (Simon Cowham) who both “learnt and refined their trades in the vineyards and cellars of Eden Valley”. The boys have successfully grown their brand with a suite of full-flavoured but well-proportioned Barossa and Eden Valley wines - predominantly reds - that have gained impressive critical acclaim. 

The wines are built on classic Barossan varieties and blends, but with a modern elegance that makes the wines simultaneously approachable and cellar-worthy. With Cowham's vineyard resources and Ryan's winemaking prowess, Sons of Eden has become one of the best value producers in Australia.

Additional Info

From The Producer

There are two Eden Valley Riesling Vineyards that contribute to the 2019 Freya blend. One is situated within the cooler section of Eden Valley and has an east-west row orientation. The second is located in the much cooler, higher altitude High-Eden sub-region. The vineyards are all hand-harvested in the cool of the morning and then chilled to a further 6ºC before being gently pressed.

100% whole-bunch and berry pressed with only the finest pressings retained. The juice was settled cold and racked clear to begin fermentation. Fermented cool at 12-14C for 3 weeks before finishing sugar-dry. To promote palate texture the wine was held on yeast lees for a further 3 months before being bottled.

The Wine Front

"Lime, white flower perfume, a dusting of pepper and spice, green apple. It’s quite tight, but has an approachable nature, lime zest and green apple, stony and lightly chalky, frisky but flavoursome, with preserved lemon and pith running on a long finish. Delicious wine. Has grip and energy, and a subtle come-hither personality." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

#9 of Top 100 Best Value Wines of 2020 - "A very finely detailed nose with lemon, lime, light pepper, crushed stones, apple blossom, flint and chalk. The palate has a superb delivery of super long, elegant yet powerful lemon, apple and grapefruit flavors. Fresh and focused finish. Concentrated. Drink or hold." - James Suckling

Good drinking

This Riesling is great value and easy drinking. It's not too acidic and had plenty of fruit, right in the slot.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
