As an aperitif, or with almost any dish from spring salads to seriously spicy curries.
The colour is bright with beautiful green straw tinges at the edges of the glass.
The aroma is a fragrant and floral beauty. Hyper-intense Eden Valley Riesling smells. This Heirloom Riesling is like smelling spring in Eden Valley, flowers blossoming, especially jasmine and textbook limes and lemon rind but also with hints of gingerbread and lime cordial. Some delicious hints of classic fresh custard and toast characters seem to be emerging in the background.
This palate has that extra dimension, no just fresh and fruity but a marvellously mouth filling juicy palate; a touch of creamy mouth-feel a wonderful part of the landscape. All balanced sweet and zingy citrus but overall a pristine, elegant pure Eden Valley Riesling with flavours that fulfils and refresh. Taught acidity with washed river stone-like minerality which delves into green apples. The definition of Riesling flavour is long, ample and fine. A tight old vine expression of Eden Valley Riesling that has all the hallmarks for a long term cellar life.
This Heirloom Vineyards Riesling was made from our best Eden Valley Vineyard whose manicured old vines embody the very best in cutting edge, but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally fermented free run juice, with ambient vineyard and winery yeasts, gently tank pressed and stored on yeast lees for 9 months before bottling.
