Ceres ‘Full Circle Vineyard’ Central Otago Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 02-Oct-2012
Bright, pale straw-yellow, near colourless on rim. The bouquet is elegant and very tightly bound with aromas of mineral-infused white florals, a little flintiness and delicate lime and lemon fruit, all expressed with purity. Off-dry, a fruit amalgam of limes and lemons, and exotic florals show with intensity and concentrated body, unfolding gently to become subtly mouthfilling. The wine has a fine textural thread and brisk acidity providing drive, line and a tight focus. This is still youthfully undeveloped, the finish light and reserved at present. This is a beautifully pure off-dry Riesling with exotic fruit hints that will show more over the next 4-5+ years. Serve as an aperitif or match with Asian cuisine. Fruit from the ‘Full Circle' vineyard on Felton Road, fermented to 12.7% alc. and 10 g/L rs. 18.0-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $23.00
