Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling

The first vineyard planted in Eden Valley, Pewsey Vale, is situated above the Barrosa in a cooler climate, ideal for a greater ripening. Planted in 1841 it truly was ahead of its time, many a grape was tried out there with the experimental Joseph Gilbert at the helm. His research helped the Australian wine industry become what it is today. Sadly, Australia’s Great Depression made the vineyard fall into disrepair.

 

 

On the discovery in 1961 that he had acquired the oldest vineyard in the region, Geoffrey Angas Parsons with his passion, along with knowledge from Wyndham Hill Smith, who knew what grapes grow best in the area, set about restoring the vineyard.

 

It has now become one of Australia’s leading Riesling producers, with this being the epitome of their wine making style.

 

Light lemon and limes show through on the pallet with a little tropical fruit. If cheap German

s of old have put you off tasting Riesling today, then this will make you sit up and take the grape seriously. Rieslings have long been my favourite wines to taste (you never know what you’re going to get) and I’ll “taste” this one over and over.
