2013 Pewsey Vale "Contours" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

SKU #1468400 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Sleek with bright lemon curd, smoky flint and opulent lime marmalade on the nose, while the elegantly textured palate is graced with pithy lime zest, wet stone and zippy citrus fruit. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

95 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark A majestic wine with a distinctive personality. The statuesque palate is refined and sophisticated, yet also open and inviting. Delicious subtle toastiness weaves its way throughout the lime-infused palate. And there is a defining line of acidity running through the length of the wine. Bone-dry and outstanding (Huon Hooke, the Real Review) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Out of childhood and into adolescence with the confidence built of the balance the wine has achieved. The aromas and flavours are all citrus-related, acidity neatly aligned with its allies. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Despite the age of this museum release of Contours, from Pewsey Vale’s oldest, coolest slopes, it’s just in its teenage years, with the potential of many more years of cellaring. Pale gold in hue, it’s gained secondary notes like lighter fluid, lemon oil, lime leaf and wild herbal undertones, but there’s also a fresh floral note still present. The palate is tightly wound and chalky-textured with crisp acidity and a pleasing bitter herbal finish. Drink now - 2028. (CP) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Mixes a light, mouthwatering and airy frame with intense, aromatic flavors of beeswax, lanolin, pear and lime, lingering effortlessly on the long, energetic finish. Shows plenty of precision. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Frankly, I view my review of the 2013 Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling, as well as any vintage of the Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling, as a gift to the K&L shopper and the wine drinking community in general, since I would very much rather order all of our current stock for myself, and drink it at my leisure. I wish I could. Because, with a white wine such as this, time is no object at this point. It's developed some secondary notes of honeycomb and sheep's wool (lanolin), what the critics call "toast," although there's no toasted wood in this wine, but the lime blossom and fresh citrus-leaning Riesling fruit notes are still in the fore. It is, again, a dry wine, folks, with no residual sugar to speak of. Yet, you may become stuck on it, as I have.
