Clark Estate ‘Block 8’ Marlborough Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler edged. The nose is very delicate and subtle with ethereal aromas of lime fruit entwined with nuances of honeysuckle, a suggestion of toast and a little mineral edge. The nose grows a little in intensity with aeration. Sweet to taste and light bodied, the palate has a positive core with soft flavours of lime fruit and white florals, a little savoury honeysuckle and mineral elements. A little SO2 is present which takes the edge off the fruit expression. The mouthfeel has presence, with the sweetness and crisp acidity in good balance. The flavours carry to a light, clean finish. This is a light and delicately flavoured sweet Riesling with citrus, floral, savoury honeysuckle and mineral notes and a little SOS, on a balanced palate. Serve as an aperitif and with light Asian fare over the next 3+ years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 8.0% alc., and 42 g/L RS, TA 9.5 g/L and pH 3.01. 16.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $23.00
