The high country of Eden Valley has a long history of viticulture equaling that of the Barossa Valley. Joseph Gilbert planted the first vines at his Pewsey Vale vineyard in 1847, the same year as the first plantings by Johann Gramp in the Barossa Valley at Rowland Flat. Eden Valley covers an area as large as that of the Barossa Valley proper, albeit less intensely developed. It is justifiably famous for its Riesling, which vies for supremacy with that of the Clare Valley. This region is also home to such renowned Shiraz vineyards as Henschke's Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone and the Chardonnay vineyards of Mountadam. High Eden is an official subregion. Altitude is all-important in determining mesoclimate although aspect and slope are also important in this hilly terrain. Thus, at an altitude of around 500 metres (1640 feet) the Pewsey Vale, Heggies and High Eden vineyards at the southern end of the Eden Valley are appreciably cooler than the more northerly Henschke vineyards at an elevation of Read more »

  • Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley the Contours 2003


    People dont get the brilliance of these dry rieslings because they are so rarely encountered with this sort of age on them. Here we have an example with perfect provenance, winery direct in fact. Smoky on the nose with an almost custardy edge to the core of crabapple that is framed by subtle honey and green tea notes. On entry this remains youth... Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling Eden Valley 2012


    ~ Editor's Choice ~Quite perfumed on the nose, with aromas of apple blossoms, dry tree bark, quince and limes. While painfully young, this shows great cut in the mouth with a nice edge of richness, though it remains medium to light bodied. There's a lovely rush of sour apple, lime and raw quince flavors on the palate, with gentle floral accents ... Read More

Fermented by indigenous yeasts, with barrel ageing for added texture to the palate. An interesting aromatic profile, not your typical Viognier. Notes of white peach, sweet capsicum and ginger spice?

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2011


    The 2010 Pewsey Vale Riesling is a rich and intensely flavoured wine. Classic fruit aromas on the nose with talcum, crushed stone and limes and a hint of dried herbs. The palate shows great length and depth with lemon and limes. The wine finishes with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that wil... Read More

  • Yalumba Riesling Y Series 2011


    Sweet lime, lemon and even pineapple aromas greet the nose along with a gentle sweet, polleny, fennel top note. This is a touch soft in the mouth, supple and broad with not a lot of height. The flavors show hints of peach accenting the lime pith and apple notes, but there is something vaguely ripe underlying it all. There's some nice freshness o... Read More
