Aitken’s Folly Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Sep-2022
Bight, even, pale yellow with a slight green sheen. The nose is fresh and softly full, with lime, stone fruit, blossom, and honey. Medium-bodied, dry-ish to taste, aromas of lime and peach melded with lime blossom, crunchy minerals, mandarin peels and a hint of honey. Lively acidity is integrated, presented with softness, and carries zesty spice to a lengthy finish. Stony minerals contribute to a chalky, textural mouthfeel. This dry Riesling is generous in flavours and texture with soft and vibrant acidity. Match with clams and pulled pork over the next 5+ years. 11.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $25
