Pewsey Vale Single Vineyard Estate Riesling 2018

Eden Valley, South Australia, AustraliaEnglishman Joseph Gilbert planted the Pewsey Vale vineyard in 1847. Not much happened until 1961 when Wyndham Hill Smith fully developed the historic site, perched at 540 metres, into the contoured Pewsey Vale Vineyard of today. It’s a rare wine whose beauty most years exceed the natural beauty of the site. 2018 is another excellent example of this unique piece of earth. The nose is an intense mix of dried flowers, lemons, and white blossoms often described as reminiscent of talcum powder. The palate is equally inviting with lime, grapefruit, and white pepper finishing with tropical fruit, a dusting of sea salt, and obvious minerality. I paired this with a curried chickpea dish to perfection.
