Heggies Vineyard, Estate Riesling, Eden Valley, 2019
This vintage pared back a little from the slightly richer 2018. Lime flesh (the juice sacs), lime sherbet, white blossom with cool slate/stone and leafy cress. The palate is well layered with good interplay between quality of light-bodied fruit and texture. Showing fine, piercing intensity with a long chalky finish. Plenty of potential to age.
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
