Auburn Lowburn Central Otago Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 17-Oct-2012
Bright, pale straw-yellow with slight green hues, pale on rim. The bouquet is fresh, tight and poised with fine lime fruit aromas with minerals, flinty complexities and hints of talc that unfold in waves. Sweet to taste, the sugar is wonderfully balanced by crisp, racy acidity, allowing rich lime, floral and honeysuckle flavours form a subtle core and positive line. This has understated concentration and s roundness to the mouthfeel, enlivened by the acidity, The palate reveals complex, funky flint and mineral notes with honey, that carry through to a tightly bound, very long finish. This is a complex, fine and delicately featured, funky, sweet Riesling with plenty of crispness to keep 7-9 years. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine. Fruit from vines established in 1993 in ‘heavy' Central Otago soils, WBP and cool-fermented to 10.5% alc. and 45 g/L rs, with TA 8.0 g/L and pH 2.97. 881 bottles made. 19.0-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $28.00
