Charles Wiffen Marlborough Riesling 2009

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Sep-2011
Pale straw-yellow with a pale edge and hues of green, this has a softly tight nose of lime fruit with a little honey and minerals showing along with a little secondary toasty complexity appearing. Off-dry, this has fresh acidity driving the palate line of lime fruits, yellow florals and honey. Some secondary toasty notes are showing, as well as a fine, phenolic textural thread. The finish blossoms with florals and honey and is sustained. 80% of the fruit is from old vines from the ‘Wiffen' vineyard. Fermented to 12.3% alc. with 12 g/L rs, Drink as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 4-5 years. 18.0-/20 Sep 2011 RRP $20.15 Pale straw-yellow in colour, with bright aromas of limes and honey, and the beginnings of secondary toasty complexities. This is an elegant wine at 12.3% alc., and dry tasting, the 12 g/L rs countered by the lively, racy acidity. Excellent fruit interest with the toasty notes adding another layer. This should drink well for another 4-5+ years.  Apr 2011  RRP $20.15 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
