2011 Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Dry Riesling

2011 Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Dry Riesling


It’s been a little while since we’ve reviewed a Costco Riesling, and this is a good one to jump back in with.  It is a very nice wine for $12.99.  I prefer drier Rieslings like this that are not too sweet but packed with fruit flavor.

This bottle hails from Australia’s Eden Valley, and I should note that it was also #56 on Wine Spectator’s list of their top 100 wines of 2012.  The wine is full of tropical fruit flavor, lots of pineapple and a burst of lemon-lime on the finish. Although the weather has been pretty cold across much of the country, this is a perfect summer sipper.  It’s also the kind I like to pair with spicy food.

This is a great white and it’s dry approach makes it much more accessible than many sweeter Rieslings. Rating: 91 Points
