Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This wine shows intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime fruit.

Palate

There is great length and depth with limes, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit . The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Food Match

Enjoy on its own, or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.

Winery Profile

The Pewsey Vale Vineyard has a long and illustrious past. It was first established by Joseph Gilbert, an Englishmen who landed in Australia in 1839 from Wiltshire’s Vale of Pewsey. Joseph purchased the property in 1847 and named it after his ancestral home.

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.

During the 1920s, Pewsey Vale succumbed to the fate of so many of Australia's early vineyards, falling into disuse as a result of the severe economic hardship of the Great Depression. The vineyard's potential was rediscovered at a time when only the history books recorded the existence of the original vineyards.

In 1961, Pewsey Vale's then-owner, Geoffrey Angas Parsons, became aware that his property had once incorporated the region's earliest vineyard. Excited by his discovery, he wasted no time in paying a visit to his good friend Wyndham Hill Smith of Yalumba with a proposal to restore the Pewsey Vale vineyard.

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Rieslings are approachable wines renowned for their delicacy, finesse and intense lemon and lime characters. Grapes are left on the vines to achieve their full ripening potential, made possible by the cooler harvest conditions at the high altitude. Characteristics of Pewsey Vale Rieslings are the high levels of well-balanced acids which greatly contribute to the extraordinary ageing potential of these wines.

For over 150 years Pewsey Vale Vineyard has produced aromatic white wines of exceptional style, varietal flavour and consistency. A reputation for success with these wines and a location high in Eden Valley inspired the planting of Gewürztraminer. Pewsey Vale Gewürztraminer captures the essence of our cool climate vineyard with delightful fragrance, and long pristine palate.

For over 150 years Pewsey Vale Vineyard has produced aromatic white wines of exceptional style, varietal flavour and consistency. A reputation for success with these wines and a location high in Eden Valley inspired the planting of Pinot Gris. Pewsey Vale Pinot Gris captures the essence of our cool climate vineyard with delightful fragrance, spice and rich texture.

Pewsey Vale Vineyard 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 10º 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.
