27 Seconds Riesling 2020, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Apr-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow with a green-gold hue, even colour throughout. The nose is enticing and fresh; nuances of apple, mango, lime, lime flowers interweave crushed rocks, subtle white spice and a hint of honey. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, the palate is packed with aromas of ripe yellow apple, mango, lime and zest, unfolding lime flowers, honeysuckle and mandarin. The wine has a great concentration of fruit, nuances of mandarin and honeysuckle left on the palate to a long, dry finish. Crunchy minerals filled the palate with texture, along refreshing acidity lingers to a lengthy finish. This is a succulent Riesling with concentrated fruit of mandarin, citrus and tropical fruit mix with honeysuckle on a mineral-driven mouthfeel. Match with duck liver parfait and Cajun-spiced fish over the next 5+ years. 11.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $18
