Old block riesling

Pewsey Vale 1961 Block Riesling 2017, Eden Valley, AUD $32

A stunning wine with incredible line and intensity. The citrus focused palate is sophisticated and poised; a delicious mix of lemon and lime flavours defined by a solid core of acidity. The wine is pure and focused with subtle juiciness. Buy some to drink now, and some to lay down for the future. (Screwcap)
