This excellent riesling, with a pedigree as long as your arm, is one of the great bargains in Australian wine. It's often discounted well below $20. Pewsey Vale has three wines, but this is the real deal - a classic young Aussie riesling. The colour is bright, light yellow, the nose opens with a touch of sulfury reduction that clears to reveal limes and dried wildflowers. The taste is firm and clean and youthfully undeveloped. It will age well, until at least 2020. 12.5 per cent alcohol.
Food All pan-fried white-fleshed fish; cold prawns with mayonnaise; sushi and sashimi; fish or shellfish ceviche.
