Akaroa Winery Riesling 2020, Banks Peninsula, Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 14-May-2024
Bright, pale yellow with a light green sheen, even colour throughout. The nose is fresh and softly full, with aromas of lime, mandarin, zest and blossom. Medium-bodied, medium-dry to taste, aromas of lime melded with mandarin, zest and lime blossom, along with a hint of yoghurt. The creamy mouthfeel and lactic scent fill the back palate; zingy acidity carries a dry finish. Match with pork tacos and fish satay over the next 3 years. Fermented in stainless steel, left to sit on lees for 6 months. 12% alc, 27g/l RS. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) May 2024 RRP $50
