95 points James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion."Special Value. Sourced from a number of vineyards at various locations, this year including gaining two new compnents: the Skilly Ridge Vineyard and a high vineyard at Penwortham. Bright, crisp and with the hallmark Clare Valley length; lemon blossom and lemon flavour is the fulcrum for both present and future enjoyment, the zesty finish another plus." James Halliday"Nab this stylish summery sip and revel in its rich, leafy, kerosene-spiced fruit." Jane MacQuitty (The Times)A wonderful, delicious wine with a swarm of pear, lychee and peach flavours complemented by subtle lemon zest. It's full-bodied and savoury with a delightfully refreshing finish.
Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling 2015 is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the flavours we see so consistently each yearfrom this wonderful single vineyard. This wine shows intense aromas of talcum and lemon lime fruit, with a fine floral perfume overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with limes, white flowers and fresh rosemary. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity, which balances the flavour intensity, and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.
The nose is fresh and appealing with splashes of freshly squeezed lime juice and lemon blossom. On the palate this wine is fresh, crisp and appealing with loads of zesty citrus. The palate is long and defined running straight down the centre of the tongue to a finish that sings with crisp acidity.
" Good intensity of lime and honeysuckle-like flavour through the mid palate, more or less sustained through the finish." James HallidayProduced from fruit off a 90 year old Eden Valley vineyard, it is drinking well now and will cellar through to 2020.
