PEWSEY VALE RIESLING
The 2017 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, and shows the flavours we see so consistently each year from this wonderful single vineyard. A pale straw with green hues, the wine shows intense fruit aromas of talcum and lemon lime fruit, with a hint of overlaying dried herb.The palate sho ws great length and depth with limes, a hint of pineapple, white flowers and fresh rosemary. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.
Very attractive, clean, floral aromas, slight yeastiness; a noticeably riper spectrum of aromas than the Prima. Soft, round, quite rich for a riesling and smooth texture. Lots of flavour and very accessible. Drink: 2018 to 2026; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 91 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
