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 2019 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, and shows the flavours we see so consistently each year from this wonderful single vineyard. A pale straw with green hues, the wine shows intense fruit aromas of talcum and lemon lime fruit, with a hint of overlaying dried herb.The palate sho ws great length and depth with limes, a hint of pineapple, white flowers and fresh rosemary. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.
It never fails to please. It's the gentle flow of citrus flavours, the hint of ginger spice and finger lime popping acidity and the dry, light finish. Enjoy it with the freshness of youth or age with confidence to build out more depth.
