The 1961 Block represents the oldest vines at Pewsey Vale. The vines are in the centre of the amphitheatre on a gentle slope that faces due north and allows the grapes to soak up every hour of sunshine. This wine is pristine with aromas and flavours of lemon myrtle and tea tree blossom, with crushed quartz minerality it is evocative, seamless and ageless. The wine shows great tautness as a young with that will delight early drinkers as well as those who want to put it in the cellar for 15+ years.
Perched high above the Barossa, the Eden Valley gives a cooler and longer season compared to the Barossa and therefore makes more elegant and aromatic wines. Blending between the two regions is quite common to get the best of both worlds. Shiraz and Riesling excel in the Eden Valley.
One of the world’s most noble varieties and known transmitter of terroir. Riesling is an important variety for quality wine production although only makes up approximately 4% of the planted area. Wonderful wines are found in Germany, Austria, Alsace and Australia. They can be as dry as any wine you’ll taste or super sweet and luscious. It is a wonderful grape. See more about Riesling here.
