Bald Hills Last Light Single Vineyard Riesling 2017, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Jun-2020
Bright, light yellow colour with a golden-green hue. The bouquet is voluminous with intense aromas of citrus, lime and grapefruit, flash and zest; melded with lime flower, kerosene nuances, underlying crushed rocks minerality. The palate is expressive with breadth, medium-bodied. Off-dry style, there's an oily mouthfeel rounding out sharp lime and grapefruit flavours; unveiling honeysuckle, lime blossom; with electric acidity flows with crushed rocks mineral element, underlying white pepper spices lingering to a long and refreshing finish. This is a satisfying Central Otago Riesling with good concentration, showing classic lime and mineral detail, accompanied by attractive blossoms and spices on an electric acidity flow with crunchy minerals and a soft mouthfeel. Match with pork belly and mussels over the next 5 years. Whole bunch pressed to tank, fermented to 11.8% alc, 20.8g/l RS. 18.5+/20pts June 2020 RRP $30
