Auburn Central Otago Dry Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 07-Dec-2013
Brilliant, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is very elegant and fine in intensity of lively, fresh and pure lime and lemon fruit aromas. This is classical Rieslin expression, revealing floral and mineral nuances which provide detail and depth. Dry to taste, and medium-light bodied, a soft and refined mouthfeel is the feature, the palate showing a positive core of lime and lemon flavours along with white florals. This speaks of purity and presence, the textures soft with ripe acidity and the finest phenolics that carry the wine to a gentle, dry, thirst-quenchingly long finish. This is a very fine-textured, mouthwateringly dry Riesling with classical lime and lemon fruitiness. Serve as an aperitif or with seafood over the next 5-7 years. Clean fruit from Pisa, Northburn and Bannockburn. The Northburn and Bannockburn portions WBP and cool-fermented clean; the Pisa portion foot-stomped, given 5 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel. After blending this has 12.5% alc. and 5 g/L RS, with TA 9.1 g/L and pH 2.98. 903 bottles made. 19.0-/20 Dec 2013 RRP $28.00
