The riesling takes its name from a local landmark, Peggy’s Hill, at the top of the range between Eden Valley and Keyneton. Produced from selected traditional Henschke Eden Valley growers, whose vines are up to 50 years old, growing in low-vigour ancient Cambrian soils at around 500m altitude. The Eden Valley riesling displays exceptional varietal and regional characteristics.

"I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m not sure Henschke spring to mind as a major Riesling player. I harbour a suspicion that they’re the estate’s best wines..."

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green hues.
Lifted floral aromas of fragrant rose petals, citrus blossom and zesty lime.
The palate is full of sweet, juicy fruit, layers of texture, mineral notes and crisp acidity, finishing long and clean.
