Citrus fruit leads the nose of the Hentley Farm Riesling, with aromatics like lime and lemon curd really shining. Secondary tropical characters such as passionfruit and guava provide more intensity and combine with a slight herbal influence. The palate mirrors the nose although the citrus appears even more pronounced here. A very fine palate with crisp acid through the middle and textural elements providing the supporting act along the sides.
The fruit is sourced from three small, high altitude (420-450m) blocks of Eden Valley Riesling. Planted in late 70’s and early 80’s on shallow grey sandy loam soils with underlying granite, on south-east facing slopes. These blocks provide the ideal site characteristics for premium Riesling production.
