Auburn Alexandra Central Otago Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 13-Mar-2011
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with faint green hues. This has a very fresh, firm and intense nose of very fine lime fruit with floral nuances, laced with minerals and of touch of reduction detracting on opening, but clears quickly. Medium–dryish to taste, this is a wine with lovely delicacy of lime and mineral flavours, enriched with notes of honey. The acidity is very-well judged, the wine distinctly fresh, enlivening the fine textures. Fruit from 10 y.o. vines in the Earnscleugh area of Alexandra, cool-fermented to 10.5% alc. and 45 g/L rs. This will be a fine aperitif and will match Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 5-6+ years. 60 dozen made. 17.5+/20 Mar 2011 RRP $30.00
