Heggies Vineyard Riesling 2015

Coming from some of the highest vines in South Australia (550m), this Heggies Riesling throws up some white flowers, slate and lemon zest aromas. Quite fragrant, the more I smell it the more a muted rose water type of character seems to appear.

Good fruit is delivered with lively acidity. The mid palate is thin. Too thin perhaps. Had the fruit flushed through a little more it would have moved up a notch or two. Expected minerally grip hangs on as does a citrus kick with a talc like finish. Dry, I could have a glass but it doesn't captivate me as much as I would like. Fish and chips would go just fine with it mind you.

There's certainly aging potential here. I reckon it would shape up a bit better with a few years under the belt.
