Very pale in colour with green hues; the aroma has a hint of the classic Pewsey Vale Riesling characters but is most prevalent of lemon blossom and home-made lime cordial. The palate shows great length with a vibrancy of perfumed fruits such as guava, mandarin and sweet peach overlaid with a touch of spicy clove. The balance of the wine is succulent and mouth-watering and invites a second glass. Both Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling and this style of wine have great pedigrees for ageing, so even though this is only the second Prima Riesling made, we know that the wine will cellar well, slowly developing flavour layers of fresh toast and spice for many years. (5-15+)
Prima Riesling is an early harvest style of wine made from grapes picked three to four weeks before the rest of the vineyard. Chosen for their fine citrus flavours the grapes were carefully selected when their natural sugar levels were near 10º baumé. The final wine has been made in a semi-dry style which retains some of the fruit sugars in balance with the chalky mineral acidity. The naturally lower alcohol of the wine further heightens its refreshing character.
Prima Riesling is our first use of the Vinolok closure for Pewsey Vale, a reusable and recyclable glass stopper that visually enhances the exotic nature of this wine whilst preserving its pure fruit flavours.
Smooth and distinctive, with lovely pear and nectarine fruit that balances against lively acidity. There's sweetness, but the acidity cuts it well, and this finishes as mouthwatering. An early-harvest style. Drink now through 2013.
