Archangel ‘Halina’ Central Otago Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 20-Jun-2017
Brilliant, even straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, paler edged. The nose is softly full and voluminous with an intense and deep heart of lime fruit, honeysuckle, white florals and subtle secondary development notes of toast and kerosene. Medium-dry to medium in taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded and gentle mouthfeel of limes, honeysuckle and gentle floral flavours, unveiling toast and mineral detail. The mouthfeel possesses fine-textured phenolics and fruit extract, and the sweet fruit is balanced by crisp, brisk acidity. The flavours forma finely concentrated core that carries to an elegant, long lingering finish of lime and honey. This is a gently mouthfilling medium-dry Riesling with a taut core of lime and honeysuckle, and balanced, brisk acidity, now beginning to show a little secondary toasty complexity. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked clone GM 239 Riesling fruit, fermented in stainless-steel to 11.2% alc. and 25 g/L RS, TA 7.6 g/L and pH 2.92. Around 140 cases made. 18.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $25.00
