    There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

    Pewsey Vale Block Riesling 1961 CONFIRM VINTAGE

    Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
    The Pewsey Vale property was first planted to Riesling by Joseph Gilbert in 1847. The site was later purchased by well known grazier Geoff Angas Parsons, who in 1961 invited his friend Wyndham Hill Smith to jointly develop the historic vineyard. They believed the site could produce delicate Rieslings in the Germanic style. High in the Eden Valley's low fertility, grey and sandy loam soils, a prolonged ripening late into the cool autumn season develops recognizably consistent flavour profiles, today known as classic Pewsey Vale.

    Over a century and a half of wines have flowed from the superlative Pewsey Vale vineyard. From a clone planted in the Eden Valley during the 1800s, traceable to some of the original vine cuttings brought into Australia by James Busby. Any new plantings are propagated from the original vines. Pewsey Vale is not an easy vineyard to manage. Lean and hungry soils which limit the vigour of the vines, the high altitude and the vineyard's specific microclimate have necessitated the adoption of specialised viticultural management. The property itself is an idyll of gently undulating hills, fifty hectares of which are under vine, nestled close to Pewsey Vale Peak, just west of Eden Valley town centre.
    Pale straw, green hues. Intense fruit aromas of talcum, crushed stone and lemon lime fruit with a hint of overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with lime, a hint of white flowers and fresh rosemary, finishing with a fresh natural acidity that balances the intensity and minerality. Flavours evolve elegantly, toast, orange blossom and honey can be expected, while retaining the classic fresh citrus lift and palate weight of Pewsey Vale.
