The Details

Tasting Note Pale straw with green-gold tints. Fragrant citrus blossom and lime zest with hints of lemongrass and bath salts. Fine, elegant restraint and drive of natural acidity through the length of the palate. Flavours of citrus curd, fresh lemon and lime zest, perfectly in balance with the refreshing slatey texture, linger on the finish.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with Asian spiced shredded chicken salad or a green mango and crisp noodle salad
Treatment We ensure each vintage is of consistently high quality. Grapes are picked in the cool of the night, with gentle handling of the free-run juice to retain maximum fruit aromatics. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts to maintain fruit purity and freshness in the final wine.

The Story

Riesling was the foundation variety of Heggies Vineyard with the original plantings dating back to 1975. Thin gravel soils, limited water and vine age ensure crop levels at Heggies Vineyard are moderate, producing wines with characteristic quartz-like precision and the ability to age gracefully. The combination of cool climate and altitude provide the perfect conditions for producing the distinctive, beautifully structured and balanced Riesling for which the Eden Valley region has become synonymous.

Accolades

96 Points
Such attractive perfume and fragrance with lemon and white peach, plenty of spice and crushed stones, too. The palate has a very vividly fleshy feel with fresh, long and elegant drive. A great vintage. Drink or hold.
