Hedberg Hill wine tasting notes Nov 2016

White wines:

Riesling

2016 Peter's Riesling

A classic dry Riesling showing bright apple and citrus flavours with crisp minerality.  Rieslings such as this will develop into a more complex style for over 15 years.

2012 Late Harvest Riesling (375ml)

A luscious aromatic dessert wine made from hand picked late harvest Riesling grapes.  Bright acidity, significant Botrytis and barrel ageing has added extra richness and flavour.

Chardonnay

2015 Lara's Chardonnay 

Description: Light straw-green; the fragrant and complex bouquet leads into a truly lovely palate, where white peach, nectarine and grapefruit flavours sweep away the French oak in which the wine was born and matured; great length and balance, and a long aftertaste.

89 points - James Halliday 2017

Viognier

2014 Claudia's Viognier

The flavour of Viognier has been described as “seductive, luscious, opulent, viscous wines with exotic aromas of lychee, musk, rose, pear, apricot, ginger spice and citrus blossoms”. Viognier is an exciting new taste sensation in the world of aromatic white wines.
The grapes are picked late in autumn when fruit flavours become strong and the fruit develops an orange hue.  The dry wines are matured in older oak barrels to provide additional richness.  Viognier will develop greater complexity with bottle age.

Rosé wines:

2016 Joyce's Rosé

A crisp dry Rosé made from an early harvest of 50% Cabernet sauvignon and 50% Merlot grapes.  A pre fermentation cold soak for 24 hours has given a lovely salmon colour to this wine.  This wine has lifted red berry and herbal notes over a savoury textured palate.  Enjoy for the next 2-3 years.

Red wines:

Tempranillo

2015 Lee's Tempranillo    

A medium bodied red wine with vibrant raspberry and plum aromas with firm but soft savoury, dry tannins.  Ageing in older French oak barriques has added further complexity to this lovely wine.  It will age  over 5-7 years.

Tempranillo is a very important variety from the Rioja Region of Spain where it produces some of the best wines in that country.  It is relatively new to Australia and is well suited to the Orange Region as it has a similar climate to the Rioja.  The cool climate of Orange helps improve grape colour and maintain the rich berry fruit flavours and fresh acidity.  This variety ripens very early which explains the origin of the name from the Spanish “temprano”- meaning early or precocious.

Bronze Medal - 2016 Orange Wine Show

2014 Merlot Tempranillo

A lovely rich red wine that integrates the soft fullness of Merlot with the bright lifted aromatics of 20% Tempranillo.  It was launched at FOOD Week 2016 and is Peter's first wine made at the vineyard.

Bronze Medal - 2016 Orange Wine Show

Merlot

2011 Beau's Merlot

A lovely rich soft full coloured red wine with good weight and texture. Voilet and cherry fruit aromas abound.  Ageing in French oak barriques has integrated fine grained tannins with well balanced cool climate Merlot flavours.

88 points - James Halliday (2015)

Cabernet sauvignon

2015 Oscar's Cabernet sauvignon 

An elegant Cabernet with ripe berry flavours and fine grained tannins as developed from a warm dry vintage and ageing in French oak barriques.
