2006 Pewsey Vale "The Contours" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
Filled with vitality, this has subtle nuances of lanolin and yogurt around a vibrant core of lime and pineapple fruit, finishing dry, with impressive length. Drink now through 2023.—H.S.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pewsey Vale’s 2006 The Contours Riesling displays evolving aromas of lime tart, lemongrass, beeswax and toast with a hint of almonds and chalk dust. Light bodied, dry and very crisp in the mouth, it offers an excellent concentration of earth, toast and warm citrus fruit flavors with a long minerally finish. Drinking very well now, it should continue to evolve and drink to 2021+.
The 2006 Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine. It has a still pale straw color with hues of green. Intense but restrained classic fruit aromas of lemons, with a hint white flowers, influenced now with the first sings of bottle aged toast and lemon grass. The palate shows great length and depth with limes, dried rosemary and a hint of lemongrass. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity, which balances the flavor intensity.
