Carrick Organic Josephine Riesling 2020, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 08-Sep-2021
Bright, pale-yellow, even colour throughout. A small amount of effervescent settles in the glass. The nose is soft and delicate, aromas of ripe stonefruit, mango with a citrus underlay, sweet blossoms and zest unveil. Medium-full bodied, medium-sweet to taste, concentrated aromas of apricot, green mango entwined with lime and zest, sweet blossoms, and a hint of spice linger to a full-flavoured finish. The fruit sings ripe apricot and green mango; salivating acidity drives a focused, vibrant flow. The wine has excellent concentration and weight; balanced sweetness and acidity elevate the essence. Match with Sichuan Boiled fish and polenta & cheese fries over the next 8+ years. Fermented in tank to 9% alc, 48.4g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $34
