Carrick Organic Josephine Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 06-Jul-2022
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is sweetly soft, with aromas of stonefruit, citrus and mandarin zest entwined with honey and subtle spice. Medium-bodied, medium-sweet to taste, honey overlays stonefruit, mandarin, zest, blossom and a hint of spice. The wine is clean with fruit's purity; well-balanced sugar and acidity provide a cleansing, soft mouthfeel, lingering to a moreish, dry, balanced finish. This moreish Riesling has excellent balance, features harmonious stonefruit and honey aromas and a soft and refreshing finish. Match with chicken liver parfait and spicy Asian fare over the next 8+ years. Handpicked fruit from Arthur's Vineyard, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented in tank to 9.5 alc, 45 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) July 2022 RRP $34
