Winemaker's Notes:

Each individual block of grapes was picked at optimum ripeness exhibiting the classic ripe flavors gorgeous natural acid freshness evident in the Pewsey Vale Vineyard, Eden Valley. Timing could not have been more perfect as the rain and cold weather came in early April 2007 when the wines were safely tucked away in tank.

The 2007 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine, with classic fruit aromas of lemons and limes and a hint of overlaying dried herb. This wine shows great length, finishing with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavor intensity, and will reward with medium to longterm cellaring.

About Pewsey Vale:

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".

With an altitude varying between 485 metres and 500 metres, Pewsey Vale sits 250 metres above the Barossa Valley floor. The cooler temperatures found at this height encourage a longer ripening period which extends well into autumn. This longer ripening period is essential for producing superior quality grapes with exceptional flavour and character - hallmarks of Pewsey Vale wines. Block to block variation enables winemakers to select from separate parcels of fruit to tailor wines to the Pewsey Vale style, ensuring consistency from vintage to vintage.
