Dancing Water ‘Reka’ Waipara Riesling 2008

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-May-2012
Hand-picked fruit with 50% botrytised, WBP fermented to 9.5% alc. and 101 g/L rs. Bright, full and even, light-golden yellow colour. The bouquet is tightly bound but showing concentrated savoury citrus fruits with notes of minerals, honey and marmalade forming a complex amalgam. Sweet to taste, the flavours are initially restrained, but grow to reveal savoury lemon-curd, marmalade and honey. Sweet and sour notes with complex crème caramel and botrytis characters add to the range of flavours. The richness is balanced by crisp, cutting acidity which lends a firmness to the mouthfeel. The wine finishes with densely packed, long and lingering citrus and honey notes. Match this rich and concentrated, complex flavoured dessert Riesling with moderately rich desserts over the next 4-5 years. 18.0/20 May 2012 RRP $32.00
