James' Review

Pewsey Vale was a famous vineyard established in 1847 by Joseph Gilbert, and it was appropriate that when the Hill-Smith family began the renaissance of the Adelaide Hills plantings in 1961,it should do so by purchasing Pewsey Vale and establishing 40ha of riesling and 4ha each of gewurztraminer and pinot gris. The Riesling has also finally benefited from being the first wine to be bottled with a Stelvin screwcap in 1977. While public reaction forced the abandonment of the initiative for almost 20 years, Pewsey Vale never lost faith in the technical advantages of the closure. A quick taste (or better, a share of a bottle) of five- to seven-year-old Contours Riesling will tell you why. Exports to all major markets.
