2007 Pewsey Vale "The Contours" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
Still remarkably pale and bright straw-green; the bouquet is of crushed lime leaves and a hint of petrol, the latter dissipating on the pure, tightly folded palate and its steely acidity. A very good wine, but doesn't reach the heights of some prior museum releases.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 The Contours Riesling shows pronounced, evolving aromatics of preserved mandarin peel, lemon curd and lightly brown toast with touches of almond shavings and fresh hay. The light-bodied, dry palate is filled with maturing flavor layers, both savory and citrusy. There’s a lovely precision to the structure and crisp acid backbone that lingers on the long finish. Drink it now to 2020+.
Vibrant and complex, with a refreshing feel to the lime, pineapple and floral core, hinting at kerosene and lanolin as the finish lingers enticingly. Drink now through 2020. 20 cases imported.
