The Heggies Vineyard grapes are picked in the cool of the night and swiftly transported to our winery. There is minimal handling of the juice and only the free run portion is selected for Heggies Riesling. The juice is fermented at a cool temperature using aromatic yeasts and blended early at the completion of fermentation. At Heggies there are a number of blocks of Riesling available so when the final blend is made there is a variety of options ensuring each vintage is of consistently excellent quality.
The nose shows delicate floral notes, enveloping citrus blossom and a touch of musk. The palate opens with grapefuit zest developing further to a white flower fullness and a crisp minerality on the finish. The wine lingers refreshingly with a fine balance between stylish Riesling fruit notes and natural acidity. Drink now or cellar for a minimum of five years.
