Pewsey Vale Estate Riesling 2023
Pewsey Vale does nothing but Riesling and they do it extremely well. No surprise with a winemaker like Louisa Rose in charge. This is from their single site in the Eden Valley, parts of which were first planted back in 1961, although the original vineyard dates back 175 years. The fact that 2023 is an exceptional vintage only adds to the lustre of this wine. A wild ferment in stainless steel. The alcohol is a minimalistic 11.5%. Fabulous value and it is always one of our most consistent wines. The colour is a shining pale yellow – imagine morning dew in an orchard of lemon blossoms (and do the same for the aromas). Spices, limes, citrus, river stones, this is balanced and quite pristine – a seamless style with fine acidity, excellent balance and a long finish. This is a beautiful Riesling with ten to fifteen years ahead of it. Just love it.
