The Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling. The palate shows great length and depth with lime, a hint of white flowers and fresh rosemary.

High in the hills surrounding the Barossa Valley lies Pewsey Vale, Eden Valley’s pioneer vineyard. Englishman Joseph Gilbert established the vineyard in 1847, trialling several grape varieties, including Riesling. The site was later purchased by well-known grazier Geoffrey Angas Parsons. In 1961 Angas Parsons called on friend Wyndham Hill-Smith to assist him in developing the historic vineyard site. After researching old records and studying the vineyard’s climate, soil types and suitable clones, the pair believed the site provided the perfect conditions to develop delicate Rieslings. In the ensuing 12 months, Wyndham established a contoured Riesling vineyard upon the slopes of the estate. Today Pewsey Vale Vineyard is a single vineyard dedicated to the single variety – Riesling.

Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2016 is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the flavours we consistently see each year from this amazing single vineyard. This wine shows intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime fruit. There is great length and depth with limes, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit . The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring. Enjoy on its own, or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.

The 2016 growing season followed a dry winter and dry and warm spring. A warm December and mild January were conducive to healthy vines and good flavour accumulation. Some rain at the end of January provided welcome refreshment. The diurnal variation, so important to Eden Valley and to Riesling, was higher than average throughout the growing and ripening season. This allowed the vines to rest each night, and retain the fine flavours and natural acidity that is evident in this 2016 wine.
