Anchorage Nelson ‘Classic’ Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 06-May-2012
Fruit from the ‘Riwaka' vineyard cool-fermented to 10.0% alc. and 20 g/L rs with a TA of 8.1 g/L and a pH of 2.96. Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on edge. This has a fresh nose of limes and lemons with apples and nuances of fresh herbs and pepper. Medium in sweetness, this is tightly bound and youthful, showing green apple and lime fruit flavours backed by thirst-quenching acidity. A slight textural line adds to the palate presence and along with the crisp acid, provides a firm line and dry finish. This German kabinett-styled Riesling is very fresh and undeveloped, showing apple-like flavours and some firmness, but will develop over the next 4-5 years. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine. 16.0/20 May 2012 RRP $16.00
