Henschke Julius Eden Valley Riesling 750ml
Grape Variety: 100% riesling grown in Eden Valley.
Cyril Henschke developed the Henschke reputation for premium riesling wines as early as the 1950s from the vineyard areas of Eden Valley, Keyneton and Springton in the Eden Valley wine region. This region provides ideal ripening conditions for the riesling grape and has a unique track record of exceptional ageing potential for the variety. The Eden Valley riesling vineyard is planted on sandy loam over gravel and bedrock with patches of clay. The wine is named after ancestor Julius Henschke, a highly acclaimed artist and sculptor.
Pale straw with lime green hues. Fragrant, yet restrained aromas of lemon and lime zest, citrus blossom and kaffir lime leaf with underlying nuances of green peppercorn, white flow- er florals and a hint of anise. The tightly wound palate leads with intense zesty citrus fla- vours that are followed by layers of crisp acidity and minerality for a long, fine and beautifully balanced finish.
