Pewsey Vale 2015 Eden Valley Riesling

Wine writers are always looking for something new and exciting about which to report. It may be a new producer, a different grape variety, or wine from a new region. That means we can sometimes overlook wines that are tried and true; and have stood the test of time. There is nothing particularly exciting or newsworthy about the new-release Pewsey Vale riesling other than its amazingly consistent quality. The Pewsey Vale vineyard was established in 1847 and produced some of Australia's first cool-climate wines. Fast forward 170 odd years and it is still a prime high-altitude site producing vibrant, dry, minerally and downright delicious dry riesling vintage after vintage. $25.
