Chasing Harvest Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Nov-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full and vibrant with apple, citrus and blossom aromas. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of green apple, toffee apple, lime and zest entwined with apple blossom and stony minerals. The wine is attractive, with excellent presence and energy, concentrated and lengthy. Stony minerals and zest contribute to the line and texture; bright, precise acidity drives a long, textural finish. This dry Riesling shows excellent balance, depth and an enticing palate. Match with prawns with lemon butter and whole flounder over the next 8+ years. Fruit from Bendigo, handpicked, stemmed, crushed by foot, macerated overnight, pressed to old, neutral oak barrels for fermentation, left on lees over winter, bottled late spring. 13% alc. 72 cases produced. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $32
