Pewsey Vale Vineyard 1961 Block Riesling 2018

94 Points

A subtle yet concentrated nose, defined by lemon curd, white pepper, nutmeg, oyster shell and Granny Smith apples. Medium-to full-bodied and so driven by the acidity that lines every corner of this beauty. It’s also what gives structure to this wine, drawing all the pithy lemon flavors in and triangulating the attack. The finish is long and remarkable. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2018

94 Points

The nose here is alive with loquat, dried apricots, quartz, riverbed and white stones. The medium-to full-bodied palate is so waxy and lemony with a real sense of structure and depth. Tangy and bright, this ends long and slightly oily. Drink now. Screw cap.

170 years of Riesling at Pewsey Vale Vineyard

The Pewsey Vale Vineyard was established at Eden Valley in 1847 producing some of Australia’s first cool climate wines.

Today we celebrate the noble variety and continue our mission; creating Rieslings of provenance from this single site.

To commemorate the 170th anniversary we released a small parcel of very special wine, from a block planted in 1961. Our 1961 Block Riesling is a new wine from old vines. This block is the dress circle of Pewsey Vale, situated in the centre of the vineyard amphitheatre on a gentle slope that faces due north and embraces the sun. Wild ferment overlays flavours of lemon myrtle and tea tree blossom, with seamless minerality. An ageless wine with youth and longevity.

93 points - A delicious young riesling.....

93 Points – Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2016 - It’s a delicious young riesling. Lemon, lime and slate flavours rush straight and direct through the palate, aided though by a smidgen of textural softness. There’s almost a kaffir lime leaf character here. It’s hard to tell how this will age – it seems so up-and-about now – but as a young wine it tastes terrific.
