Pewsey Vale The Contours Museum Release Riesling 2016

From old vines on the coolest slopes of the Pewsey Vale vineyard and held back to show the promise. Wild ferment. Winemaker is Yalumba’s Chief Louisa Rose.

Pewsey Vale, The Contours, Museum Release, Riesling, Eden Valley, 2016

Medium lemon/straw in colour. Hints of development on the nose with baked lime and toastiness. Pineapple core, slate, sage leaf, wax paper and heady blossom. Complexity and grace. The depth of short term development gives mid-palate richness that dovetails into focus with saliva-inducing acidity. Many years of life ahead.

RRP: $40
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 18.75/20 (95/100)
