Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2018
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Eden Valley|
The 2018 Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the generous flavours we see so consistently each year from this amazing vineyard. Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. The palate shows great length and depth with grapefruit and lime, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity, and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.
Food Pairing: Enjoy on its own, or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.
Part of the Hill-Smith dynasty that includes Yalumba, this straw-hued Eden Valley Riesling is testament to winemaker Louisa Rose's passion for the variety. In Eden's typical fruit-forward fashion, the nose is a restrained yet attractive combo of ripe peach, tangerine and waxy citrus fruit, with soft floral and herbal nuances. The palate is broad and mouthfilling but not creamy. Instead it's a precise balance of lifted acidity, chalky texture and concentrated fruit. Drink through 2029.
The lime and quince flavors are vibrantly juicy, with hints of minerality and matcha green tea. Drink now. 40,000 cases made, 6,000 cases imported.
