Very pale in colour with green hues; the aroma has a hint of the classic Pewsey Vale Riesling characters but is most prevalent of lemon blossom and home-made lime cordial. The palate shows great length with a vibrancy of perfumed fruits such as guava, mandarin and sweet peach overlaid with a touch of spicy clove. The balance of the wine is succulent and mouth-watering and invites a second glass. Both Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling and this style of wine have great pedigrees for ageing, so even though this is only the second Prima Riesling made, we know that the wine will cellar well, slowly developing flavour layers of fresh toast and spice for many years. (5-15+)
Prima Riesling is an early harvest style of wine made from grapes picked three to four weeks before the rest of the vineyard. Chosen for their fine citrus flavours the grapes were carefully selected when their natural sugar levels were near 10º baumé. The final wine has been made in a semi-dry style which retains some of the fruit sugars in balance with the chalky mineral acidity. The naturally lower alcohol of the wine further heightens its refreshing character.
Prima Riesling is our first use of the Vinolok closure for Pewsey Vale, a reusable and recyclable glass stopper that visually enhances the exotic nature of this wine whilst preserving its pure fruit flavours.
"Smooth and distinctive, with lovely pear and nectarine fruit that balances against lively acidity. There's sweetness, but the acidity cuts it well, and this finishes as mouthwatering. An early-harvest style. Drink now through 2013."
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.

The Riesling grape is happiest in a cooler climate, one that fosters its slow
and steady ripening. Often assumed to be the producer of only sweet wines, Riesling
is a fascinating grape of many faces. From bone dry to lusciously sweet, this
variety is delicious at any sugar level with its intense aromas and steely acidity.
