2011 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

SKU #1081466 91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Tight and flinty, this wine needs several years of bottle age to soften and develop. The texture is lithe, the flavor packed with lime and crushed stone. Restrained, almost severe for the moment, this should plump up with age. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Top 100 Wines of 2012* Vibrant, bracing and compelling, this white aims pear, pineapple and lime flavors straight to the palate. Persists impressively on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

90 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Some straw-green colour development; overall, has rich and riper aromas and flavours than most from this vintage, making the wine ideal for immediate drinking, although it is in fact bone dry. Inner quote mark (9/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Riesling offers a youthfully muted nose of lemon peel, kumquat and green apples with hints of chalk dust and peach blossoms. Dry and light to medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of tension and nervy, tight-knit flavors marked by crisp acid and a long finish. Drink this one 2013 to 2021+. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Editors' Choice* Punched up aromas of lime sherbet, talcum powder and apple blossom only tell part of the story. This is a concentrated wine with a firm backbone of acid that shows off the intense citrus character, plus hints of crushed stone and underripe peaches. Drink now-2020. Inner quote mark (4/2102)

K&L Notes

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Rieslings are approachable wines renowned for their delicacy, finesse and intense lemon and lime characteristics. Grapes are left on the vines to achieve their full ripening potential, made possible by the cooler harvest conditions at the high altitude. Like past vintages, this shows high levels of well-balanced acids that greatly contribute to the extraordinary potential of these wines and their pure deliciousness! (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

Quite aromatic, with lime and a touch of petrol. Really pleasurable on the palate. Off-dry with a very exciting prickly sensation on the tongue. Very refreshing!
