Burn Cottage Central Otago Riesling/Gruner Veltliner 2015

Blended White from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 17-Apr-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh and elegantly concentrated with aromas of yellow florals and savoury citrus fruits entwined with subtle fresh herb notes, white pepper and complexing nutty suggestion, Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has good depth of savoury citrus fruits and yellow florals intermixed with subtle herb and white pepper elements, and butty notes, unfolding lifted white florals. The mouthfeel possesses fine, grainy phenolic textures and good linearity, with bright, refreshing acidity. The palate has richness and presence, carrying to a long, lingering, dry-textured finish. This is an individual Riesling/Gruner Veltliner blend with succulent citrus and floral fruit along with herb, white pepper and nutty flavours of a fine, textural plate with freshness and presence. Match with firm-fleshed fish and most white meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. A blend of 54% Riesling given 72 hour skin contact, and 46% Gruner Veltliner with 48 hours on skins, both varieties whole cluster foot-crushed, and fermented in stainless-steel barrels and seasoned barriques to 12.8% alc. and 6.3 g/L RS, TA 7.3 g/L and pH 3.19, the wine aged 11 months in barrels and barriques. 117 cases made. 17.5/20 Apr 2017 RRP $55.00
