Winemaker Notes

#56 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The 2011 Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling. A pale straw with green hues, the wine shows intense fruit aromas of talcum, crushed stone and lemon lime fruit, with a hint of overlaying dried herb. 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

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Vibrant, bracing and compelling, this white aims pear, pineapple and lime flavors straight to the palate. Persists impressively on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,600 cases imported.

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

Some straw-green colour development; overall, has rich and riper aromas and flavours than most from this vintage, making the wine ideal for immediate drinking, although it is in fact bone dry.

The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Riesling offers a youthfully muted nose of lemon peel, kumquat and green apples with hints of chalk dust and peach blossoms. Dry and light to medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of tension and nervy, tight-knit flavors marked by crisp acid and a long finish. Drink this one 2013 to 2021+.
