Heathvale The Witness Riesling 2017

Heathvale Vineyard is located only minutes drive from Henschke Cellar Door in Eden Valley. Elevated at 400 - 450 meters sat a vineyard that was long gone until Trevor & Faye fell in love with the remarkablelandscape the property has to offer. After lecturing for many years in Viticulture Trevor couldn't resist to replant what once was. Long days and resilience was required to restore this extremely dry parcel of land to create white & red wines of deep intensity, mineral, limestone chalkiness and wines of high acid for very long term cellaring.

The Witness Riesling is bursting with freshness and floral notes with a fragrant nose of orange blossom, followed by a waxy, lemon palate and a clean, assertive finish of fresh curds, white pepper and wild thyme. Poised, but generous, wine.

Perfect food match for seafood & spicy Thai curries but for me at the end of a long hot day absorbing the views.

Alcohol: 12% Cellar: Now - 20+ years Wine Maker: Trevor March & Chris Taylor Production: 130 cases

Moving to Eden Valley and the old ‘Heathvale’ property in the mid 1980’s we learnt bits about its history from local residents until a chance visit by one of William Heath’s daughters, in her 90’s, opened up a whole new dimension for us.
