Pewsey Vale Vineyard’s love affair with Riesling started in 1847, when our vineyard was the first planted in the Eden Valley.

A hidden utopia, our family reinvigorated Pewsey Vale Vineyard in the 1960s. The focus fell sharply on the beauty and diversity of Riesling in its many forms.



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 Geoff 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 Germanic style.

In the ensuing 12 months, Wyndham established a contoured Riesling vineyard upon the slopes of the estate.

Today Pewsey Vale Vineyard is dedicated to a single variety – Riesling.

What’s it like/Tasting Notes

Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling, showing the generous flavours we see so consistently each year from this amazing vineyard. Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. The palate shows great length and depth with grapefruit and lime, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity, which balances the flavour intensity, and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring. Enjoy on its own or with fresh oysters, seared scallops, Thai beef salad or salt and pepper squid.
