Bald Hills Last Light Riesling 2020, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 09-Nov-2021
Bright, even, pale yellow with a green sheen. The nose is freshly soft, aromas of lime, tangelo melded with crunchy minerals and citrus blossom. Medium-bodied, medium-dry to taste, vibrant attack of lime, tangelo intermixed green apple; minerals and apple skins, leaving a trace of phenolics on the palate. Subtle citrus blossom haul along with acid tension, finish on a dry, refreshing tone. The sweetness emphasised the flavours and broadened the mouthfeel; searing acidity cut through to a clean, crisp closing and lingered with a hint of white spice. This is a vigorous, intense Riesling with citrus tension, floral detail on a textural palate and a crisp finish. Match with tom yum and spicy tomato risotto over the next 4+ years. Whole bunch pressed, inoculated in tank, fermented to 12.2% alc, 23.2g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $30
