Eden Valley Region, Australia
Pewsey Vale Vineyard’s love affair with Riesling started in 1847, when our vineyard was the first planted in the Eden Valley.
With an average altitude of nearly 500 metres, Pewsey Vale Vineyard sits 250 metres above the Barossa Valley floor. The resultant cooler temperatures encourage a longer ripening period that is essential for producing superior Riesling grapes.
This is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, and shows the flavours we see so consistently each year from this wonderful single vineyard. This Riesling shows intense aromas of talcum, lemon and lime, with a hint of fresh pineapple overlaying dried herbs. The palate shows great length and depth with limes, a hint of pineapple, 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. – Louise Rose, Winemaker
