Caythorpe Riesling 2018, Marlborough

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Aug-2020
Bright, light yellow-green, even throughout. The nose is elegant and soft with fragrances of lemon, lime and peels, green apple and a slight toffee apple tone. Light-bodied, dry to taste, flavours of citrus fruit, lime sorbet and stonefruit, flows along with stony mineral to a light toffee apple finish. The fruit is pure and fresh, reflecting the crunchy minerals, leaves a refreshing sensation. The great acid drive flows smoothly with a light phenolic texture, a light tone of toffee apple lifted the finish with interest. This is a light & refreshing Riesling with crunchy citrus and mineral features. Match with white fish and calms over the next 2-3 years. Fermented in stainless steel to 11.5% alc, 8.5 g/l RS. 18-/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $20
