Hemelrand Vine Garden produces a unique wine. The aim of Alheit Vineyards is to bottle the wine just as the vineyard produces it, effectively creating a white field blend that changes every year depending on the vintage conditions. This way they have one place expressed by a few different grapes, changing as the season dictates. The wine is always remarkable and continues to gain in stature as the vines mature.
The nose is intense and exotic, with aromas of salted lemon and quince, oatmeal and a hint of white flowers. The palate has great acidity, balancing richness. Very long finish. This is a great Vine Garden vintage.
