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 Dry Riesling Eden Valley 2012


    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 and a hint of spice ... Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2011


    Lovely mineral water, sandy soil, and floral notes accent the Meyer lemon core of fruit. Rich and deep on entry this has absolutely wonderful freshness and fine cut. It expresses a nice mineral edge early on with subtle apple flavors topped with a fine citrus quality. this is dry and austere, structured with broad shoulders that lead into a fine... Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2009


    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


    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
