Pewsey Vale sounds more English than Aussie! That's because founder Joseph Gilbert was from Wiltshire. In 1847, he planted the first vineyard in the Eden Valley. Neglected during the war years, the vines were resurrected in 1961, with the support of renowned Wyndham Hill-Smith. This 56-hectare, single vineyard lies at 485-500m altitude, high for Australia, so grapes - all Riesling - ripen slowly, capturing the layers of stony, floral, apricot fruit, as well as dazzling freshness. The soils are poor and stony too, which makes them hard to work but ideal for pure, intense flavour. Winemaker Louisa Rose firmly believes the work, all sustainable and some organic, is done in the vineyard. This Riesling is one to snap up and enjoy, or cellar.

"Dried apricots, quartz, riverbed and white stones. Waxy and lemony with a real sense of structure" James Suckling
