Winemaker Notes

Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2016 is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the flavors consistently seen each year from this amazing single vineyard. This wine shows intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime fruit. There is great length and depth with limes, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit . The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavor intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Enjoy on its own, or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.

JS 93
James Suckling
Final blend unbottled and unfiltered, this has plenty of fragrant lime and stone fruit aromas on the nose. There's a supple, even and succulent palate; good flesh, spicy, even and balanced.
Range: 92-93
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Riesling opens with notes of chalk dust and wet pebbles over a core of lime juice, yuzu zest and lemongrass. Light-bodied and bone dry with a racy line of acidity cutting through the intense citrus and mineral flavors, it finishes with great freshness and length.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This wine's aromas of lime sherbet and flower shop greens is textbook Eden Valley Riesling. This is a tight, cellar worthy wine, floral and citrusy on nose and palate, with medium body and a persistent finish. Drink now–2025.

Pewsey Vale Winery Video

The Pewsey Vale Vineyard was established at Eden Valley in 1847 producing some of Australia’s first cool climate wines. The early Pewsey Vale Vineyard Rieslings were exported to England where they won numerous awards in the prestigious wine shows of the era. Today Pewsey Vale Vineyard is a highly esteemed, specialist, single site estate vineyard with provenance. Riesling is our single focus. Elevated above the Barossa Valley on undulating land, Eden Valley is situated between 450 and 500 metres above sea level. At this altitude, the cooler temperatures and greater diurnal range allow the grapes to retain their natural acidity, with aromatics and fine flavours slowly developing well into the cool, dry autumn. The soils through Eden Valley are generally shallow, rocky and acidic, in many areas suited only to the grazing of sheep and cattle. There are special pockets with slightly deeper soils and finer rocks, where the vineyards have been planted. Pewsey Vale is one of the great Riesling vineyards of the world. Where a true alliance between nature and variety exists, the need for human intervention is minimal. Gentle guiding hands and an understanding of place are all that is needed to create consistent and delicious wines… vintage after vintage.

Higher in elevation and topographically more dramatic than the Barossa Valley floor, Eden Valley abuts it to its south and east. While it is a bit of an extension of Barossa, Eden Valley is topographically different than the pastoral Barossa Valley, and is composed of rocky hills and eucalyptus groves.

Recognizing Eden Valley’s potential with Riesling in the 1960s and 70s, producers started to move their Riesling production from Barossa to these better sites where schist soils on hilltops would produce more steely, tart and age-worthy examples. A most famous site, planted by Colin Gramp, called Steingarten, today produces one of the most outstanding Australian Rieslings. Youthful Eden Valley Rieslings express floral, grapefruit and mineral, while with time in the bottle, they become increasingly toasty and complex.

Riesling isn’t the only grape the region can grow; undeniably at lower altitudes Shiraz does very well. Mount Edelstone is a notable vineyard as well as the Hill of Grace, which boasts healthy Shiraz vines well over 100 years old. This is the only Australian region where Merlot has a made a name for itself and Chardonnay can be spectacular, particularly from the High Eden subregion in the southern valley.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
