Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
The Eden Valley's unique contribution to Australian Riesling is monumental. Heggies is a tremendously challenging vineyard, not an easy one to manage for the growers but the completed wine is a most splendid Riesling. Each grape variety has it's own programme of care according to its position in the vineyard. Working with the natural surroundings rather than against them is the driving force. Every factor is taken into consideration, to grow the most perfect fruit and to ultimately capture the flavour and balance of the grapes in their purest essence.
Through the use of innovative viticultural practices, working to capture the unique terroir of this challenging single site vineyard, the Heggies viticultural team have produced a wine that is fine and balanced, with enduring minerality and strong regional expressiveness. At Heggies there are a number of blocks of Riesling available, ensuring that the finished wine is of consistently excellent quality each year. Grapes are picked throughout the cool of night and swiftly transported to the winery. There is minimal handling of the juice and only the free run portion is selected. Juices are vinified at cool temperatures to aromatic yeasts and assembled promptly after completion of ferments.
Pale straw with green tints. Notes of orange blossom, citrus, fresh lime juice and a hint of stone flint. The wine shows great length, drive and complexity, flavours of citrus, grapefruits and lime. An outstanding wine in its youth, Heggies finishes with a hint of spice and mouth watering acidity. Vegan friendly and perfect with tempura king george whiting.
