Pewsey Vale Single Vineyard Estate Riesling

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
