Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington... Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

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.
