Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2013)
Mixes a light, mouthwatering and airy frame with intense, aromatic flavors of beeswax, lanolin, pear and lime, lingering effortlessly on the long, energetic finish. Shows plenty of precision. Drink now.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2012)
Pewsey Vale's 2012 The Contours Museum Reserve Riesling has been released right at the beginning of its maturity. It offers up hints of beeswax, bergamot and lime, with maybe just hints of nectarine and marmalade to balance things out. It's dry and medium-bodied, and shows just how good Eden Valley Riesling can be after a few years of age.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 93 Points (2012)
Louisa Rose selects the fruit for Contours from a block planted in 1965 at this historic vineyard, dating to 1847. In an acknowledgment of the bottle age great Eden Valley riesling needs to realize its potential, Rose cellars this for five years before release; after we twisted the screw cap, the wine held its freshness for a week, which is not surprising, given that Pewsey Vale, an early adopter of Stelvin closures, can develop for three decades or more with proper cellaring. This 2012 is youthful, bright and crisp, with the crunch of fresh grapes yielding a flavor of lime essence and stony white peaches. Harmonious and vibrant.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2012)
This is a classic example of an aged Eden Valley Riesling. Pale gold in color, aromas of lemon curd, kerosene, crème brûleé and dried herbs carry the nose. The palate is rich but balanced by mouthwatering acidity and a herbal finish. There's plenty of life left. Drink now–2027.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2012)
Very perfumed and aromatic with petrol, stone and lemon curd aromas that follow through to full body, fresh acidity and a medium finish. A solid wine as always. Drink now. Screw cap.

Greywacke Chardonnay 2021
Greywacke Chardonnay 2021
An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.

The Glass Collection Syrah has a wonderful dark and rich colour with a slight purple hue to the edge. The aromatics of the wine are intense with floral tones such as Yasmin and violet coming through…
