Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2009
Prima Riesling is an early harvest style of wine made from grapes picked three to four weeks before the rest of the vineyard. Chosen for their fine citrus flavours the grapes were carefully selected when their natural sugar levels were near 10° baumé. The final wine has been made in a semi-dry style which retains some of the fruit sugars in balance with the chalky mineral acidity. The naturally lower alcohol of the wine further heightens its refreshing character. of this wine whilst preserving its pure fruit flavours. The Pewsey Vale Prima Riesling exhibits a purity of style. Very pale in colour with green hues; the aroma has a hint of the classic Pewsey Vale Riesling characters but is most redolent of lemon blossom and home-made lime cordial. The Palate shows great length with a vibrancy of perfumed fruits such as guava, mandarin and sweet peach overlaid with a touch of spicy clove. The balance of the wine is succulent and mouth-watering and invites a second glass. Both Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling and this style of wine have great pedigrees for ageing. This wine should cellar well, slowly developing flavour layers of fresh toast and spice for many years (5-15+).

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Actually, 3.5 stars. Color, nice clean color. Nose, pear, green apple, a hint of grapefruit, and some flowers coming through. Midpalate, considerably dry, clean, crisp, not a light riesling. Finish, this wine has nice acidity, lingering, nice finish. I am 90 on this effort. Happy drinking!
