Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine. Classic fruit aromas on the nose with talcum, crushed stone and limes and a hint of dried herbs. The palate shows great length and depth with lemon and limes. The wine finishes with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 The Contours Museum Reserve Riesling shows lovely, evolving lanolin and petrol notes, with beeswax and toast over a core of lemon curd, lemongrass and lime leaves. There is some honey, as well. This is a dry, light and expressive Riesling with tons of layers of flavor, as well as a long finish.

Wine & Spirits

Louisa Rose selects this wine from the coolest hillside at Pewsey Vale, a vineyard first planted in 1847 and restored by the Hill-Smith family in the 1960s. She releases it five years after the vintage, when the wine has just begun to open. This 2010 is still youthfully austere, with a brisk, dramatic spiciness, a lime-leaf and mineral flavor that lasts. It should continue to mature over the next decade.

Wine Enthusiast

This release is always among my favorite Aussie Rieslings. Not only is the quality consistent, the price for a nearing-maturity wine makes it a winning value. It is smoky and toasty on the nose, showing off those developed aromas to good effect against a background of bergamot-tinged fruit. The round patina of age is balanced by great acid drive and a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now–2020.

Australian Wine Companion

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.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Strikes a lovely balance between petrol, lanolin and toasted almond notes, with dry, vibrant lime and lemon meringue flavors. Fresh and focused, presenting a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2026.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

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.

Pewsey Vale
Pewsey Vale Vineyard was first planted to Riesling by Joseph Gilbert in 1847. The site was later purchased by well known grazier Geoff Angas-Parsons whom in 1961 invited his friend Wyndham Hill Smith to jointly develop the historic vineyard site. They believed the site could produce "delicate Rieslings in the Germanic style".

With an altitude varying between 485 metres and 500 metres, Pewsey Vale sits 250 metres above the Barossa Valley floor. The cooler... View More
