'Part of the Hill-Smith dynasty that includes Yalumba, this straw-hued Eden Valley Riesling is testament to winemaker Louisa Rose's passion for the variety. In Eden's typical fruit-forward fashion, the nose is a restrained yet attractive combo of ripe peach, tangerine and waxy citrus fruit, with soft floral and herbal nuances. The palate is broad and mouthfilling but not creamy. Instead it's a precise balance of lifted acidity, chalky texture and concentrated fruit. Drink through 2029.' – Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast, 92/100

'Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemons and limes. Shows great length and depth on the palate with grapefruit and limes, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a soft natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring. Enjoy with seared scallops, salt and pepper squid, or a Thai noodle salad.' – Winemaker

Producer information High in the hills surrounding the Barossa Valley lies Pewsey Vale, Eden Valley's pioneer vineyard. Englishman Joseph Gilbert established the vineyard in 1847, trialling several grape varieties, including Riesling. The site was later purchased by well-known grazier Geoffrey Angas Parsons. In 1961 Angas Parsons called on friend Wyndham Hill-Smith to assist him in developing the historic vineyard site. After researching old records and studying the vineyard's climate, soil types and suitable clones, the pair believed the site provided the perfect conditions to develop delicate Rieslings. In the ensuing 12 months, Wyndham established a contoured Riesling vineyard upon the slopes of the estate. Today, Pewsey Vale is a single vineyard dedicated to the single variety – Riesling.
