Auburn Lowburn Central Otago Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 13-Mar-2011
Made from fruit from 17 y.o. vines from a tiny site at Lowburn, clean fruit with less than 5% botrytis influence, cool-fermented to 10.5% alc., and 64 g/L rs, this has a brilliant straw-yellow colour with light lemon hues and a very fine, delicate bouquet of floral perfumes, acacia blossom and the most subtle and beautiful nuances of talc botrytis. Medium-sweet on palate, this has a beautiful, delicately soft texture with gentle, subtle, honey and lime flavours, lifted with perfumed blossom notes. Good acidity provides tension and the sweetness adds richness to the finish. This is a very attractive aperitif wine that will also match light-to-moderately spicy Asian dishes over the next 4-6 years. 60 dozen made. 18.5-/20 Mar 2011 RRP $30.00
