Bannock Brae Central Otago Dry Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 05-Apr-2018
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is tightly bound with firm and intense aromas of white stonefruits and citrus fruit along with white florals and chalky minerals. This is thirst-quenching and possesses a youthful austerity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a soft, fine and rounded, but concentrated core with flavours of white stonefruits and citrus fruits, melded with white florals and gently mouthwatering minerals. The mouthfeel features a fine, dry-textured line with balanced, refreshing acidity. This has good linearity and the finely concentrated core leads to a soft-textured, lingering, nuanced, thirst-quenching finish. This is a soft, fine-textured dry Riesling with white stonefruit, floral and mineral flavours. It will develop more richness over the next 5 years. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and poultry. Cromwell Basin fruit, treaded and fermented in seasoned oak barrels to 12.5% alc. and 4.6 g/L RS, TA 8.5 g/L and pH 2.94, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 18.0/20 Apr 2018 RRP $25.00
