Blank Canvas Marlborough Riesling 2018

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is fresh and delicate with taut and refined aromas of lime fruit, white florals and subtle notes of mouthwatering minerals at the core, revealing nuances of herbs. The aromatics are youthfully pure with excellent clarity. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, the palate has delicate and subtle flavours of lime fruit, white florals with notes of honey and minerals. The mouthfeel is thirst-quenching with crisp, lacy, brisk acidity and the wine flows along a fine line with good enery and tension, leading to a sustained, nuanced finish. This is a delicately fruited medium Riesling with lime, floral and mineral flavours on a mouthwatering palate. It will develop over the next 4-5+ years. Match with Asian fare. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Anandale Farm’ vineyard, Blind River, Awatere, fermented in stainless-steel to 8.6 % alc. and 23 g/L RS, TA 8.7 g/L and pH 2.9. 18.0+/20 Nov 2018 RRP $28.00
