Heggies Vineyard Riesling grapes are picked in the cool of the night and swiftly transported to our winery. There is minimal handling of the juice and only the free run portion is selected for the Heggies Vineyard Riesling. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts and blended early at the completion of fermentation. At Heggies Vineyard there are a number of blocks of Riesling available, so when the final blend is made there are a variety of options to ensure each vintage is of consistently excellent quality.

Expert Reviews

"A light yellow in the glass, there is a slight effervesce that disappears within a few minutes and should sort itself out with some time in the bottle. The nose is youthful and aromatic with lemon blossom, wet slate and jasmine. The wine shows good purity of fruit with a mineral and textural grapefruit grip that provides a counterpoint to driving citrus acidity and more subtle orange blossom and unripe pear characters. The finish lingers with wet slate and powdery citrus."91 points - Patrick Eckel, winereviewer.com.au, 6 July 2015

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The magnificent sweep of country that is now the Heggies Vineyard had been grazing land for most of its settled history and was owned by local grazier and bushman, Colin Heggie, before being purchased by Wyndham Hill Smith, then Manager of the Yalumba Wine Company.

Friends since school days, Colin and Wyndham's friendship continued into adulthood and throughout their lengthy negotiation over the purchase of Heggie's land - a negotiation that was, it has been suggested, not a lot more than an excuse for relaxed chats about land, cattle, horses, wine and life!

Planting began in 1971 on the tough North Eastern corner of the property and the first wine was released in 1979. It was the first wine to bear the idiosyncratic label that features a drawing of Colin Heggie, the bushman, looking out over the fledgling Heggies plantings astride his faithful chestnut, Jack.

At 550 metres above sea level, Heggies is one of Australia's highest altitude vineyards and also one of its coolest. The close-planted clonally-selected grafted vines are grown in semi-drought conditions, meaning the soil is lean and hungry - a thin layer of grey sandy loam over clay and decomposed rock. The vines compete vigorously for moisture and nutrient, encouraging roots to dig deep into the soil where it is moist and cool throughout all seasons.
