Henschke Julius Riesling 2013


Coming from one of Henschke’s fine riesling vineyards in Eden Valley, 2013 was a very good vintage for them.  There is some mineral limestone savouriness to the ripe stonefruit and abundant floral and spicy perfumed notes on the nose that I associate with riesling from Eden Valley.

Dry and crisp, the acid is soft but drives the line along the palate to extend the finish. This riesling is one to enjoy now or to cellar over the coming decade. Just one of Henschke’s riesling line up – this one proudly sports the Eden Valley embossed bottle. Drink as an aperitif or enjoy with seared scallop ravioli.

Date: October 2013   Price:  $35    Value:  $$$     Drink: Now – 10+ years
