Henschke Peggy’s Hill Riesling 2018 is a pale straw colour with green-gold hues. An intense bouquet of citrus blossom and green apple with hints of frangipani, delicate white flowers and musk, supported by fragrant lime leaf aromas. Vibrant lemon and lime flavours lead to subtle green apple and musk, with ripe citrus acidity providing a fine and focussed palate with excellent persistence and length.
The riesling takes its name from a local landmark, Peggy’s Hill, at the top of the range between Eden Valley and Keyneton. Produced from selected traditional Henschke Eden Valley growers, whose vines are up to 50 years old, growing in low-vigour ancient Cambrian soils at around 500m altitude. The Eden Valley riesling displays exceptional varietal and regional characteristics.
