Pewsey Vale Riesling 2011

I couldn't get enough of this little number. Maybe because it was a warm day and I was a little parched, or perhaps it was so easy to keep sipping away at it. Either way, very impressive.

Looks great in the glass with a pale straw appearance, I thought the nose was tight but it seemed to relax as time went on. Lovely aromas of lemons, some apple and even a whisker of pear.

Clean, crisp and fresh characteristics on the palate really defined this wine (12.5% abv). All elements tie in nicely together which has resulted in a very tidy piece of work, and the price for this quality is nothing less than phenomenal.

Add this to the Summer of Riesling list!!
