Wine of the Week AU

Pewsey Vale Riesling 2016, Eden Valley, AUD $25

A wine of distinctive character, reflective of both its variety and region. Sweet-scented aromatics of ripe limes and blossoms. The palate has fabulous intensity, progression and weight with bright, integrated acidity and rounded edges. Its completeness is impressive. Drinking beautifully now but it will continue to evolve with time in bottle. Highly recommended. (Screwcap)
