The first Heidenreich vineyard was planted in Vine Vale by Rufus Armein Heidenreich in 1936. These vineayrds are still in production, and still owned and managed by the Heidenreich family. After a career spanning 15 years as an Intensive Care Nurse, Liz Heidenreich decided to follow in the heritage of the family and commence a career in winemaking.
The yields were very low across the Clare Valley in '19, but the quality was very high. This wine achieves the difficulty of dealing with flavours going OTT without losing the brightness and freshness the palate displays. It's lemon/lime/green apple sorbet all in one mouthful. Acidity of 7.5g/l and a pH of 2.88 are the indicia of a high quality riesling wherever it may be grown.
