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.
Pale straw with green hues. Intense aromas of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemons and lime. A long and rich palate, reminiscent of grapefruit, lime and fresh rosemary. The wine finishes with a soft natural acidity which balances the flavour and minerality that is delicious now or will reward medium to long-term cellaring.
A heady perfume of iris and rose petals, lemon and lime, pear and fresh apple skin overlies a whiff of slate. Long and focused, with a vibrant core of fruit that extends long and effortless down a crunchy, chalky spine, it culminates with a refreshing acidity and a lingering slatey note. Superbly textural and streamlined. Drink to: 2033-2041+; Price: $20-$29; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 96 Points (19.0); Jeremy Oliver
A very fresh, piercing nose of sliced lemon with plenty of sweet perfume, too. The palate is similarly intense and vibrant with white stone-fruit and lemon flavors, delivered in an impressively intense and balanced mode. Drink or hold. Screw cap. Rating: 96 Points; Nick Stock in James Suckling

Year in and year out these wines from the Pewsey Vale vineyard continue to impress. It is of course from one of the great riesling regions with the cooler climate and natural slopes ideal for this variety. This fresh as a daisy riesling from Eden Valley has just so much palate intensity, while retaining a fine sense of delicacy and refinement. There is a massive hit of lemon fragrance from the outset that says riesling, riesling riesling. Then the lemon influence yields to release a mix of spices and dried herbs adding considerable complexity. This carries through to the very long finish with a fine minerally acidity. Drink to: 2023-2041+; Price: $26.00; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 94 Points; Ray Jordan
