Pewsey Vale Vineyard Eden Valley Riesling 2017
Pewsey Vale is THE home of Eden Valley Riesling. 91 Parker Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
High in the hills surrounding the Barossa lies Pewsey Vale, Eden Valley's pioneer vineyard. Pewsey Vale Vineyard is the hallowed home of Riesling. The vines can be traced back to the 1800's and the original James Busby collection of cuttings brought into Australia. Today Pewsey Vale Vineyard is a single vineyard dedicated to the single variety - Riesling.
"the 2017 Single Vineyard Estate Riesling features textbook florals, green apples and limes. It's light to medium-bodied, crisp and clean, even a bit austere, with a bright, sherbet-like zesty edge on the long finish." 93 Points - Wine Advocate
Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the flavours we consistently see each year from this amazing single vineyard. This wine shows intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime fruit. There is great length and depth with limes, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit. Finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring. Match with fresh fish or Asian cuisine. Enjoy now to 2030.
