Auburn Pisa Central Otago Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 07-Dec-2013
Brilliant, very pale straw-green colour, near colourless. The bouquet is elegant, softly concentrated and refined with aromas of white florals, sour lemons and complexing reductive mineral, flint and nutty elements. This has a savoury funkiness to the nose offering interest and intrigue. Medium-dry to medium in sweetness and medium-bodied in weight, the mouthfeel is soft, broad and mouthfilling with fine and smooth textures. This has lovely harmony with a complex interwoven matrix of white florals, minerals, flintiness and honey. Very fine acidity underlines the palate flow, carrying the flavours to a soft, honied, moderately long finish. This is a soft, mouthfilling, broad and smooth medium Riesling with harmony and balance and some funky reduction on bouquet. Serve with antipasto and tapas or as an aperitif over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from 7 y.o. vines from Pisa, with no botrytis, WBP and cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 30 g/L RS, TA 10.4g/L and pH 2.8. 864 bottles made. 18.0+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $28.00
