Winemaker's Notes

High in Eden Valley (nearly 500 m above sea level) the quality of the vineyard is a reflection of this altitude and the low-fertility, grey, sandy loam soils which prolong ripening into the cool autumn season. This long ripening period develops unique, consistent flavor profiles, which we now describe as classic "Pewsey Vale".

The 2005 Pewsey Vale Riesling is an intensely flavored wine. It is pale straw in color with lively green hues and presents intense classic fruit aromas of limes and lemon zest, with an overlaying hint of rosemary. The palate shows great length and depth with preserved lemon flavors, dried herbs and a hint of lime. The wine finishes with a soft natural acidity which balances the flavor intensity beautifully.
