Boreham Wood ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Jul-2016
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, very light on the edge. The nose is delicate with pure and refined, tightly-held aromas of white florals harmoniously entwined with lime fruit and mouthwatering wet-stone elements, unfolding nuances of honeysuckle and sherbet. Medium in sweetness and light bodied, gentle and soft flavours of limes, white florals and honeysuckle show with subtle, youthful, herbal suggestions, forming a tight, soft core. The mouthfeel is very soft and refined in texture and flows with gentle energy. The acidity is soft and lacy, and the wine flows smoothly to a lingering finish of limes, florals and fresh herbs. This is a reserved and refined medium-sweet Riesling in the Mosel Kabinett style. Serve as an aperitif and with mildly spicy Asian cuisine over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the Upper Awatere Clark Estate ‘Home’ block, fermented in stainless-steel to 8.4% alc., 30 g/L RS, and pH 2.97. 17.5+/20 Jul 2016 RRP $21.00
