Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2010
Light straw-green; a classic display of Even Valley regional character on bouquet and palate alike, with lime and lemon aromas and flavours jousting each other for space; relatively speaking, should develop quite quickly.
Bright straw. Intense aromas of lime zest, quince, pear and herbs, with a dusty floral quality adding lift. Taut, penetrating and pure, with pungent citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors underscored by a zesty white pepper element. Becomes more floral with air and finishes on a clinging note of honeysuckle. Really impressive for New World Riesling.
A superb buy for lovers of dry Riesling – Pewsey Vale’s 2010 Eden Valley Riesling reveals intense aromas of warm grapefruit, spicy poached pears, apricots, acacia honey and jasmine. Dry, very crisp, medium bodied and concentrated in flavors, it has a long finish. It’s still a touch youthfully tight, so it is best approached 2012 to 2018+.
Hints at honey, apple and citrus on the nose, then delivers all of those notes minus the implied sweetnes and coupled with high acid levels. Although this is in a nice place now as an apertif or with oysters, it should hold nicely for at least 5-7 years, adding richness and versatility as it ages.
Light and tangy, with a tart balance to the ripe pineapple and grapefruit flavors that pop through on the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,800 cases imported.
