William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Sons of Eden are well disposed to craft the very finest Eden Valley Riesling. They host a precious inventory of splendid low yielding vineyards, stimulated by cool nights and warm dry days, for optimal slow ripening of full flavour development and the retention of crisp citrus fruit acidity, so essential to the most graceful vintages of Eden Valley Riesling. Grapes are all harvested by hand, chilled to 6°C and whole bunch pressed, retaining nothing but the purest free run juices. A long cool vinification to complete dryness, in temperature controlled fermenters, aimed at preserving maximum varietal perfumes and retaining purity of fruit, is followed by gentle fining and filtration before a prompt bottling.
Pale straw hues. Aromatic and intense, pure lemon citrus and lemon sherbet characters, supported by savoury chalkiness and calico notes. Lemon lime citrus on the palate, accompanied by a tight mineral line. The long fine length of flavour is supported by crisp natural acidity, judiciously dry in style, resolving on an aromatic lilac, lemon floral finish.
