Auburn Northburn Central Otago Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 07-Dec-2013
Brilliant, very pale straw-green, near colourless. This has a very soft, interwoven nose with subtle and intricate nuances of wet stones, minerals, white florals, honey and musk. The bouquet hints at funkiness, but beauty reigns true. Medium-sweet to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate combines soft and refined mouthfilling textures with gently rich, up-front, honied, citrus and floral fruit flavours and lively, expressive acidity. This has wonderful presence, boldness and linearity with the citrus notes and acidity leading to a very long, lingering finish. This is a full, bright, lively medium Riesling with an element of robust and vibrant acidity and muskiness. Match with fresh fruit and Asian cuisine over the next 5-7+ years. Fruit from 14 y.o. vines from Northburn, with no botrytis, WBP and cool-fermented to 10% alc. and 41 g/L RS, TA 8.7 g/L and pH 2.88. 884 bottles made. 18.5+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $28.00
