The 2006 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine. Pale straw in color with green hues it has intense classic fruit aromas of limes and lemons, with a hint of overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with limes, dried herbs and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a soft natural acidity which balances the flavor intensity beautifully.
Pewsey Vale Riesling flavor profiles range from fresh grapefruit and limes to lemons in cooler years, with hints of tropical fruit - mainly passionfruit tending towards pineapple. With bottle age, the flavours develop elegantly moving towards toast, orange blossom and honey, yet retaining the classic fresh citrus lift and palate weight that is the hallmark of Pewsey Vale Riesling.
"Bright in flavor, with the polished texture lending elegance to the lively lime and pineapple flavors. Picks up a welcome minerality on the dry finish. Drink now through 2016."
