Pioneer Vineyard High in the hills surrounding the Barossa Valley lies Pewsey Vale, Eden Valley's first vineyard. Its founder, Englishman Joseph Gilbert, arrived in South Australia after seeing an advertisement in the London Times announcing the vessel, The Buckinghamshire's imminent departure for the colony. Land was up for grabs and Joseph wasted no time grabbing it, just four months after his arrival - 15,000 acres of rugged high country in the then-wild and remote Barossa ranges, some 40 miles from Adelaide. By 1841, just two years after his arrival, Joseph, the 38 year old son of a well-heeled English landowner, had built a fine homestead and planted Pewsey Vale's first grapevines. The vines were of a table grape variety, but an idea was starting to take shape... In 1847 Joseph planted a one-acre vineyard, establishing Eden Valley's pioneer vineyard and one of Australia's first high altitude, cool climate vineyards.

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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! Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley the Contours Museum Reserve 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Amazing wine and amazing value. Deep yellow and lots of viscosity. Clear signs of aging with petro notes but well underlined by zesty acidity and in great balance. Perhaps an acquired taste, but definitely comes with a personality making it well worth the try. Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley the Contours Museum Reserve 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Special very dry aged reisling. First one that I have had like it, so therefore the high marks. This reisling made from Yalumba's best fruit in the Eden Valley. During the aging this bone dry high mineral wine develops honey and brioche like overtones like some vintage champagnes. Read More
