Through the combination of innovative viticultural practices and unique ‘terroir’, this challenging and picturesque estate vineyard produces distinctive, balanced wines – beautifully structured and long on flavour.

 

Winemaking:

Heggies Vineyard Riesling grapes are picked in the cool of the night and swiftly transported to the winery. There is minimal handling of the fruit and only the free run juice is selected for the Heggies Vineyard Riesling 2015. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts and blended early at the completion of fermentation. At Heggies Vineyard there are a number of blocks of Riesling available, so when the final blend is made there are a variety of options to ensure each vintage is of consistently excellent quality.

 

Vintage conditions:

Eden Valley had good rainfall from April to July but was quite dry for the spring and early summer months. These mild conditions allowed an early bud break and generous Riesling crops to set. Heggies vineyard has limited water availability so a down-pour in early January was welcome to freshen the grapes and carry them through to an early harvest.

 

 

Tasting notes:

The wine is a pale straw colour with a green tinge, showing fresh and alluring aromatics of citrus blossom and lemon zest.

The palate is fresh and crisp, showing white flower aromas and a lemon drop acidity progressing to a tight, Eden Valley Riesling finish.

 

Food Match:

Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters.
