The 2008 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine. Classic fruit aromas of talcum, lemons and limes, with a hint of overlaying dried herb are present, along with a palate showing great length and depth with limes, and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity, and will reward with medium to
"Strong color; a powerful, complex bouquet leads into a palate bursting with lime juice fruit; has thrust and length. "
Australian Wine Companion
"The 2008 Dry Riesling is light straw-colored with an alluring bouquet of honeysuckle, citrus, and apple. Medium-bodied with crisp, ripe, succulent fruit and buttressing acidity, this dry, tasty effort will evolve for 3-4 years and provide pleasure through 2018."
The Wine Advocate
This wine might just make Riesling replace Chardonnay as my favorite. Paired with grilled tuna, marinated with a sesame-ginger sauce.
We had this wine with quail and rice. We normally aren't riesling people, preferring Pinot's or Cabs over Whites. Good flavor, nice crispness and not that sweet( which is probably why we liked it.)
Sort of adolescent.
Not what I expected @ all.
