Fabulous High Eden
Parawatta Eden Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Region:Eden Valley, SA
We are winemakers but also wine-merchants. The winemaker Benjamin Parker is constantly sampling the wines made by other small wineries looking for gems which can be added to our portfolio. A few months ago one of his many contacts offered several lots of white wines from the Eden Valley and this Parawatta was by far the best-and in this role he was acting as a wine-merchant. It sounds simple but its not and those with a lot of retail training make the best wine merchants. Its not the quality where the skill lies but in buying the wine at the right price. The Eden Valley is at a higher altitude than the Barossa Valley and lies to the east and south of this famous region. It was first explored by the German geologist-mineralogist Johannes Menge in late 1838. Being cooler it suits white varieties and this Parawatta will provide much satisfaction.
