Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavored wine. Classic fruit aromas on the nose with talcum, crushed stone and limes and a hint of dried herbs. The palate shows great length and depth with lemon and limes. The wine finishes with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Light straw-green; a classic display of Even Valley regional character on bouquet and palate alike, with lime and lemon aromas and flavours jousting each other for space; relatively speaking, should develop quite quickly. "
93 Points

"A superb buy for lovers of dry Riesling – Pewsey Vale’s 2010 Eden Valley Riesling reveals intense aromas of warm grapefruit, spicy poached pears, apricots, acacia honey and jasmine. Dry, very crisp, medium bodied and concentrated in flavors, it has a long finish. It’s still a touch youthfully tight, so it is best approached 2012 to 2018+. "
91 Points

"Bright straw. Intense aromas of lime zest, quince, pear and herbs, with a dusty floral quality adding lift. Taut, penetrating and pure, with pungent citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors underscored by a zesty white pepper element. Becomes more floral with air and finishes on a clinging note of honeysuckle. Really impressive for New World Riesling."
91 Points

"Light and tangy, with a tart balance to the ripe pineapple and grapefruit flavors that pop through on the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,800 cases imported."
90 Points

"Hints at honey, apple and citrus on the nose, then delivers all of those notes minus the implied sweetnes and coupled with high acid levels. Although this is in a nice place now as an apertif or with oysters, it should hold nicely for at least 5-7 years, adding richness and versatility as it ages."

Nice citrus taste without being overly fruity or sweet, especially for Riesling. Crisp and easy to drink. Had with Pho.

jbloore - Lockport, IL (read all my reviews)

I'd like to start by saying I tend to prefer reds to whites and therefore I'm extremely selective in which whites I enjoy. That being said, I found this Riesling unimpressive. It was heavier and had a fullness/thickness to it that seemed unique but didn't wow me. Also, noticed more traces of alcohol on the finish than I'm accustomed to with a Riesling. I tend to like something a bit more fresh, light, crisp, and clean on the finish in my Rieslings. For example, I profoundly preferred the Firestone Riesling 2010 to this bottle.
