Heggies 2008 Eden Valley Riesling

There are some very good 2008 rieslings on the market but you won't do better than this crisp, refreshing wine from high-altitude, cool-climate vineyards. Nicely structured with oodles of flavour, citrusy minerality and lovely finishing acid. $20.



Hello. Our riesling vines are a little further north (on the same ridge as the Heggies vineyard) and this particular part of the Barossa Ranges certainly does produce wines of exceptional quality but I do very much enjoy Clare rizzas as well. It's a shame that riesling is still not appreciated by most people as it truly is the King of White Wines (in my eyes anyway:)

I agree with the above. I don't understand why sauvignon blanc is so popular!

Nice blog, by the way. Feel free to take a look at mine
