Bannock Brae Central Otago Dry Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Nov-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour, very pale on the edge. This has a softly presented, refreshing nose with fragrant aromas of exotic white florals, lime fruit, with nuances of sherbet and honeysuckle, herbs and steely mineral notes. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate I softly textured with fresh flavour of limes, exotic white florals and sherbet, along with honeysuckle and mineral nuances. The mouthfeel features very refined phenolic and fruit extract textures, underlined by tight, softly ripe acidity. The wine is gentle in flow, but possesses energy and drive, leading to a sustained finish of exotic aromatics enlivened by fresh acidity. This is a beautifully soft-textured, dryish Riesling with exotic lime, floral, sherbet and honeysuckle flavours, underlined by refined energy and drive. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from Bendigo, foot-stomped and basket pressed to neutral oak, and fermented to 12.0% alc. and 7.4 g/L RS, TA 7.8 g/L and pH 2.93, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 18.5-/20 Oct 2016 RRP $24.00
