2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia (Dry)
Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Starting with pronounced green apples, citrus and white pepper, the 2015 Riesling leads to some notes of coriander seed and jasmine. Light, dry, lively and fresh on the palate, this Riesling is still a little tight, but possesses some spicy hints and great length. (LPB)
Light, bright yellow. Ripe citrus fruits, fig, green tea and a hint of honey on the nose. Shows more roundness and heft than usual for this bottling, offering pliant orange and pear flavors and a subtle touch of honeysuckle. Finishes smooth, seamless and persistent, with a building mineral note and repeating orchard fruit character. (JR)
*Smart Buys* Apple, lemon blossom and pear flavors are lively and open-textured, showing finesse and lingering beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2025. (MW)
A brand new release from perennial favorite Pewsey Vale Vineyard. This single vineyard site has been producing Riesling since it was first planted in 1847; the current owners replanted in the 1960s with cuttings from those original vines. The vineyard sits at around 1600 feet in elevation; this altitude provides cool nights and great acid retention locking in the freshness and vitality of fruit. When you consider all of this heritage and pedigree (plus that fact that it's delicious) I think this wine represents a phenomenal value for money. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L Australian wine buyer) Winemaker's Notes: "The 2015 is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the flavours we see so consistently each year from this wonderful single vineyard. This wine shows intense aromas of talcum and lemon lime fruit, with a fine floral perfume overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with limes, 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. Delicacy, finesse and intense lemon and lime characters are the hallmarks of this well-balanced wine."
