This Riesling takes its name from a local landmark, Peggy’s Hill, found at the top of the mountain range and located in the heart of the Eden Valley. The grapes are from vineyards spread around this focal point, in the northern, central and southern parts of the region, all at altitudes between 400 to 500 metres above sea level. The vines are up to 50 years of age!

Pale lemon with lime-green hues. Fragrant aromas of lemon and lime zest, white peach and citrus blossom, with hints of ginger, lemon balm and white rose. The palate is concentrated and pure with flavours of tangerine, grilled lemon and crisp green apple, framed by fine minerality giving shape and focus, excellent balance and a long finish. A crisp Riesling to enjoy on it’s own or with a mixed seafood platter.

    Description

    The Henschke family have been making wine at their estate in the Eden Valley since 1868. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke took over running the winery in 1979. Together with his viticulturist wife, Prue, they have taken their two single vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, and transformed them into two of Australia’s most sought-after wines. Through a combination of great viticulture from Prue, named ‘Outstanding Viticulturalist 2020’, who is at the forefront of re-introducing native plants into their vineyards to improve biodiversity, and winemaking from Stephen, they have built upon their inheritance and turned this traditional producer into one that is celebrated all around the world.

      Aromas of lemon and lime zest, white peach and citrus blossom, with hints of ginger.
      Very refreshing.

    The 2021 Peggy's Hill Riesling boasts almost briny scents of green apple, underripe peach, lime zest and baby powder. It's medium-bodied, linear and focused without being lean and finishes long, with echoes of green apple and citrus. I expect it will be at its best young, but this nicely balanced Riesling under screw cap will likely still be drinkable in a decade.
