How's it taste?

Limey and floral with lightly toasted aromas. The Riesling seems to press down on the tongue, showing a creamy richness of citrus, green apple and minerality. Definitively took me by surprise.

How was it made?

This Heirloom Vineyards Riesling was made from our best Eden Valley Vineyard whose manicured old vines embody the very best in cutting edge, but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally fermented free run juice, with ambient vineyard and winery yeasts, gently tank pressed and stored on yeast lees for 9 months before bottling. 

Who made it?

Heirloom Vineyards was conceived in vintage 2000, when a young winemaking student caught the eye of a silly old wine judge. A love story ensued inspired by two vows: To preserve the best of tradition, the old world of wine and our unique old vineyards and to champion the best clones of each variety planted in the most appropriate sites embracing the principals of organic and biodynamic farming. Seven long vintages of trial and error passed before Heirloom Vineyards could make a wine that was fine enough to pass on to future generations. That is this wine.
