Carrick Organic Dry Riesling 2019, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Apr-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow with a slight green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full with great energy, nuances of lime, mandarin zest, melded with a hint of honey and fennel pollen. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, the palate is filled with lime, mandarin and citrus zest; a rush of chalky mineral phenolics filled the palate, intermixed fennel pollen, lime flower and a hint of honey. Crunchy acid tension persists on the palate for an extended period, left a mouthwatering, refreshing finish. This is a citrus-flavoured dry Riesling with brilliant acid tension and a mineral drive. Match with shellfish and pork sausages over the next 6-8 years. Handpicked fruit from Arthur's Vineyard, wild fermented in old oak barriques and aged for 7 months. 12% alc, 0.6 g/l RS. BioGro organic certified. 18.5/20 (93 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $28
