Anchorage Nelson ‘Classic’ Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 28-Dec-2015
Fruit from two estate vineyards in Riwaka, cool-fermented to 9.0% alc. and 24 g/L RS, and TA 8.2 g/L. Bright, lemon-hued straw-yellow colour, pale on the rim. This is light, fresh and clean with pure aromas of lime fruit along with white florals, suggestions of sherbet and refreshing mineral nuances, building in depth with aeration. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, subtle and delicate flavours of limes fruit, white florals and honeysuckle form a fine-textured flowing line with enlivening lacy acidity. The residual sugar and fresh acidity are poised, and carry the flavours to a light, clear, finish of white florals and honeysuckle. This is a light, medium-sweet Riesling with delicate and pure flavours of lime fruit and white florals, and light, lacy acidity. Serve as an aperitif or with Asian fare over the next 3 years. 16.5-/20 Dec 2015 RRP $17.00
