The Oddbins Take

Gather around grownups as we’re going to tell you the tale of the subcontinent known as Australia. “BILLIONS OF YEARS AGO…!” Sorry we can’t, it’s too reminiscent of Ross and Rachel’s first date in the planetarium. Remember when he rolled over the juice box? Good times!


Australia is old, even older than that Friends reference, so old in fact that the mountain ranges of Australia that once reached similar heights to the Himalayas have crumbled into dust and now the land mass is decidedly flat. This means sites at any altitude are highly prized by winemakers. They are uncommon, but a good vintner can utilise these sites to fully ripen grapes but maintain acidity and aromatics. This is exactly what Pewsey Vale do. With an altitude varying between 484 and 500 metres Pewsey Vale Contours is made from a highly prized parcel of land that creates a Riesling which shows great length and depth with concentrated power, pristine fresh lime juice overlaid with toasted brioche, sage oil and lemon grass.
