Black Estate Omihi Waipara Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 23-Apr-2011
Fruit from a local grower with 11 y.o. vines cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 9 g/L rs. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light green-gold hues, this has a soft, voluminous nose with gentle aromas of citrus fruits, peaches and apricots. Medium-dry to taste, this has rich, lush flavours of limes, apricots and yellow florals on a full, open palate. A little alcohol spirit is noticeable, along with some textural phenolics, but there is lively acidity ensuring good freshness. The wine finishes dry and cleanly. This is a bright, forward Riesling that will be an attractive aperitif wine over the next 3-4 years. 16.5-/20 Mar 2011 RRP $22.25
