Desert Heart Central Otago Riesling 2008

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 28-Dec-2013
Full, light straw colour with some depth. This has a full, even and soft nose with open and broad aromas of savoury citrus fruits with secondary toast and honey notes and a little tertiary nutty, slightly oxidative complexities. Medium-dry to medium in taste, full and open flavours flow softly across the palate. Savoury lime, honey, toast and nutty flavours meld harmoniously into each other. This has richness and some lusciousness to the mouthfeel, with good underlying acidity, the palate displaying a little ‘sweet and sour’ character. The toasty development flavours prevail and carry through to a soft, mellow finish. This is a soft, honied medium Riesling with toasty and nutty development characters. This is fully mature. Drink now and over the next 2-3 years with Asian fare. Fruit from the company’s ‘Felton Road’ vineyard, hand-picked, WBP and cool-fermented to 11.5% alc. and 14.5 g/L RS, with TA 8.1 g/L and 3.01 pH. Winemaker: Jane Docherty. 17.5/20 Dec 2013 RRP $N/A Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
