Auburn Lowburn Central Otago Riesling 2013

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 08-Dec-2013
Brilliant, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on edge. This has a soft, full and broad nose with densely packed aromas of white and yellow florals, honey entwined with funky, flinty and nutty complexities, brooding and promising to release layers of interest. Medium sweet to sweet to taste and medium-bodied with real presence on the palate, softly open and broad, mouthfilling flavours of exotic florals honey and flinty minerals meld smoothly and harmoniously, building in richness and creaminess. The flavours and textures coat the palate, with a fine thread of phenolics building and carrying the fruit to a long, lingering, open finish. This is a sweet Riesling with full, soft, rich and mouth-coating richness melding the complex, honied and flinty flavours. Serve as an aperitif, with moderately spicy dishes, fruit desserts or soft cheeses over the next 6-8 years. The fifth Lowburn release. Fruit from 16 y.o. vines from Lowburn, with no botrytis, WMP and cool-fermented to 9.5% alc. and 75 g/L RS, TA 9.2 g/L and pH 2.8. 573 bottles. 18.5-/20 Dec 2013 RRP $28.00
