Auburn Bannockburn Central Otago Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 07-Dec-2013
Brilliant, very pale straw colour with green hues, near colourless. The bouquet is soft and delicately pristine with pure white florals intermixed with mineral intricacies, the aromatics showing an understated concentration and power. Medium dry to medium in taste and light-bodied, this is very tight, slender and refined in presentation with a beautifully cutting, refreshing and slippery mouthfeel. The flavours of white florals and honeysuckle combine with limes and a suggestion of wet stones and show with a subtle lusciousness. The acidity has tension and energy and provides a thirst-quenching vitality carrying the palate to a delicate, nuanced and sustained finish with sweet citrus and floral notes. This is a beautifully lively and delicate, pristine medium Riesling with a subtle lusciousness. Serve as an aperitif or match with Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine over the next 6-8+ years. Fruit from 15 y.o. Bannockburn vines, with no botrytis, WBP and cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 24 g/L RS, TA 8.6 g/L and pH 2.84. 880 bottles made. 19.5-/20 Dec 2013 RRP $28.00
