Pewsey Vale Single Vineyard Estate Riesling 2016

Eden Valley, South Australia, AustraliaEnglishman Joseph Gilbert planted the Pewsey Vale vineyard in 1847. It wasn’t until 1961 that Geoff Angas-Parsons and Wyndham Hill Smith fully developed the historic vineyard site at 540 metres above sea level into the contoured Pewsey Vale Vineyard: a single vineyard dedicated to a single variety – riesling. The 2016 is particularly dry and clipped, showing a floral mix of dried herbs, white pepper and tight, fresh lime pith acidity. The finish is equally dry and stony with a touch of sea salt that calls for food.Tasted: 06 July 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS AB 22.99 private wine shops QC 22.99 private wine shops Producer: Pewsey ValeDistributors: Negociants International
