Akaroa Winery Banks Peninsula Canterbury Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Sep-2017
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler edged. The nose is elegant with delicately fragrant aromas of lime and lemon fruit along with subtle hints of herbs and lanolin. This has freshness and clarity. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has aromatic flavours of lime, lemon and white florals, entwined with lifted herbs which enhance the freshness. The mouthfeel is vibrant and lively with refreshing, zesty acidity, and the wine has good linearity, flowing with energy and tension to a lingering, citrussy finish with lanolin and mineral elements. This is a lively and refreshing dryish Riesling with lime and lemon fruit, with floral, herb and waxy hints. Serve with Asian fare over the next 3-4 years. Fruit fermented in stainless-steel barrels to 12.3% alc., 19.84 g/L RS, TA 8.3 g/L and pH 2.98, the wine aged 6 months in tank. 17.0-/20 Sep 2017 RRP $30.00
