Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling 2017

SKU 089208300549


Appearance: Pale straw in colour with green hues. Aroma: Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. Flavor: 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. Pairings: Enjoy on its own, or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.

James SucklingA strong vintage that was picked later. It delivers a lot of concentrated lime and lemon citrus amid stony, gently talcy minerals and hints of stone fruits. Terrific acidity and flavors of ripe lime, apples and nectarines, holding the finish long and fresh. A great Pewsey Vale! Drink or hold.

Wine AdvocateA classic rendering of Eden Valley Riesling, the 2017 Single Vineyard Estate Riesling features textbook florals, green apples and limes. It's light to medium-bodied, crisp and clean, even a bit austere, with a bright, sherbet-like zesty edge on the long finish. Like most Rieslings, it can be drunk young or held a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorThis white is distinctively snappy and bright, with fleshy grapefruit, green apple and passion fruit flavors that have tremendous concentration and a long, refreshing finish. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastA more fruit-driven, approachable Riesling than the 1961 Block, this is already showing some honeyed notes along with peaches, orange peel and florals. There's plenty of bright citrusy stone-fruit flavors on the palate in addition to a wet stone minerality and laser-sharp acidity. Drink now-2028.
