Pewsey Vale 1961 Block Riesling 2022


From the vines in their single site Eden Valley vineyard which were planted back in 1961 (the oldest remaining vines in the block), the wine sees a wild ferment but then spends a few months on lees, to add to the complexity and texture. A superb vintage, this is thrilling stuff. Pale yellow, the aromas weave through citrus, florals and minerals. This is tight, taut, coiled and powerful with excellent intensity with flavours of lime blossom and orange rind showing concentration and excellent length. Balanced, but a powerful style of Riesling and yet it retains a degree of elegance. This has fifteen to twenty years ahead if it, if you have the patience, all of which makes this criminally inexpensive.
