This wine and the philosophy behind it has not changed significantly since the first wine was made from the 1964 harvest. A blend from most of the blocks on the vineyard, this wine expresses the hallmarks of Eden Valley and the Pewsey Vale Vineyard.
About the Vineyard
The growing season started with a wet winter and spring, filling up the soils, giving the vines a good start. Spring and early summer temperatures were mild and below average, resulting in a long and even ripening period. These ideal conditions for grape growing allowed us to make optimal picking decisions. The warm and dry days during late summer and autumn, combined with cool nights, lead to pristine fruit flavours and great acid retention in the 2017 Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling.
Since 2011, parcels have been fermented with the wild yeast that comes in on the grapes from the vineyard.
Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. The palate shows great length and depth with grapefruit and lime, 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.
