Pewsey Vale Vineyard The Contours Riesling is characterised by a special site, sensitive vine growing and astute winemaking.

The Details

Tasting Note Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense classic lemon aromas, with a hint of white flowers. Bottle aged characters of toast, clove oil and lemongrass emerge and combine with the still fresh citrus and white flowers of its youth. The palate has great length and depth with concentrated power and fresh, pristine lime juice overlaid with toasted brioche, sage oil and lime marmalade.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with duck breast and five-spice glaze or tofu pad Thai with fresh lime wedges.
Treatment The Contours Riesling is crafted from old vines grown on the coolest slope within this ruggedly beautiful single vineyard. Bottle ageing for five years before release transforms this Riesling into a complex wine. More richness and complexity will develop over future decades.

This Eden Valley legend is back and in great form.
It is in peak condition right now with its delicious combination of youthful pear and apple fruits that are topped by honey and buttered toast. Dry and compact on the palate – concentrated fruits sit around a strong core of acidity that provides focus and drives a long and strong finish. Despite showing some age, it is still filled with vitality and finely balanced making this an exceptional example of aged Eden Valley Riesling.

...tingling with freshness.
Pale straw-gold; heady aromas revealing the added layers of age and it is all about complexity. Lime marmalade, baked ricotta topped with lemon zest and toasty, too. It also has a line of acidity keeping this buoyant, tingling with freshness.

Long, dry and really pure.
Striking, fresh mineral aromas, lemon peel and lemon curd with a lightly toasty edge, too. The palate is so concentrated, with powerful lemon and stony-mineral flavors. Long, dry and really pure. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.
