Pewsey Vale Vineyard Contours Riesling 2016


One of the best Pewsey Vale Contours yet, the 2016 Riesling characterises both the power and the elegance of the year. There is real weight and amplitude, with a salty/chalky texture, citrus, frangipani, mandarin oil and camphor. Lots of detail and precision and with all its complexity, remarkably easy to drink! Many years ahead of it for this beauty. Waters Wine Co


So vibrant for it’s age, this has great concentration of candied-lime and grapefruit-zest character. Terrific structure and energy on the driving palate, but all of this is wrapped in rich citrus fruit to create stunningly complete harmony. Very long and compact finish that suggests this has at least a further decade of aging potential. Drink or hold. Screw cap. 97 points –


The 2016 The Contours Riesling leads with cold buttered toast, creamed honey, fennel seeds and brine, while in the mouth, the wine expands to fill every available space. This is rich, complex and so fresh. It’s kindly held back in the cellar for our drinking pleasure, so it is definitely ready for immediate consumption; but should you choose to rest this another decade or two, that would also be great. Drink 2022-2037. 95 points Erin Larkin – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
