Tasting notes

07/01/2008

Pewsey Vale sets something of a benchmark for Southern Australia Rieslings. Naturally, this wine doesn't match the complexity (or price) of its bottle-aged, DWWA trophy winning sibling The Contours, yet it is still a polished example that showcasees the beauty of Riesling in its youth. It ticks all the right boxes - limey, mineral, crisp and refreshing. Great stuff. £9.99

A pungently floral nose - freesias, hyacinth. Intense, vivid, fresh, lively palate qualified by those intriguing floral notes. Drink up to 2009.
