Akaroa Winery Riesling 2019, Banks Peninsula, Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 29-Sep-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green hue. This has a generous, vibrant bouquet with lime, zest, sherbet and blossom aromas. Medium-light bodied, aromas of lime and zest is soft, unfolding apple and hints of blossom. The wine is soft and refreshing with crunchy minerals, and taut yet restrained acidity persists to a dry closing. This Riesling is dry with a refreshing palate and delicate flavours. Match with calamari and whitebait fritters over the next 3+ years. Fermented in stainless steel to 11.47% alc, left on lees for 10 months. 17.5/20 pts (88pts) Sep 2023 RRP $50
