Pewsey Vale, The Contours, 10 Year Museum Release, Riesling, Eden Valley, 2012

PV The Contours Riesling 2012

Medium lemon/straw with light gold highlights. Still only showing adolescent development with nuances of brioche roll, baked lime tart and candlewax. Underneath that richness is purity with lime cordial, lemon zest, stony seriousness, sage herbaceous and white blossoms. Profound and deep. Wonderfully balanced and sitting in a sublime position for immediate indulgence or further ageing.

RRP: $50
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 19.25/20 (97/100)
