2020 Henschke Peggys Hill Riesling

Region – Eden Valley, Australia
Winemaking - Grapes were harvested in the cool of the morning. Once in the winery, the best grapes were selected using a sorting table, followed by selective technology, before being destemmed, lightly crushed and gently pressed to tanks for cold-settling. The juices were racked into refrigerated, stainless steel tanks and cool-fermented to dryness with neutral yeasts. Once completed, the wine was assembled and bottled post-vintage to preserve the delicate aromatic fruit characters.
What it tastes like - Pale lemon with lime-green hues. Fragrant aromas of lemon and lime zest, white peach and citrus blossom, with hints of ginger, lemon balm and white rose. The palate is concentrated and pure with flavours of tangerine, grilled lemon and crisp green apple, framed by fine minerality giving shape and focus, excellent balance and a long finish.
