Welschriesling, or 'foreign' riesling, is a lovely grape that does not get enough acknowledgement. Known in Croatia as Graševina, it is the most widely planted white grape variety and is often much admired in the UK as an exotic and rare grape. Under the Austrian name Welschriesling, it is less well appreciated as the name offers incorrect and confusing links to Riesling, to which it has no relationship.

This clear wine has plenty of youthful acidity but has added a reasonable amount of gravitas with age. There is a depth that was not there when the wine was young. This gives a very long and pleasant finish to the wine and makes it much more food friendly than originally.

Consistency is often the hallmark of a great winemaker and there is no doubt that Heidi falls into that category. The notes on the 2013 " This wine has the minerality of mountain stone and flowers paired with notes of gooseberry" could equally apply to the 2012 and I would be hard pushed to choose between them. (August 2018)
Vintage 2013

This wine has the minerality of mountain stone and flowers paired with notes of gooseberry. Still holding up to the test of time the acidity cuts through on the palate and the wine ends on a long almost savoury finish that will pair well with food (July 2018)

I have to stand by my comment on the 2012. The 2013 is fresh, crisp and delightful. Pairs perfectly with sunshine. (August 2018)
