Domain Road The Water Race Dry Riesling 2018, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 20-Aug-2020
Bright, light straw-yellow with a slight lime-green hue, even throughout. The bouquet is fresh and full of vitality, nuances of lime, grapefruit along with its zest, melded with fragrances of orange blossom, honey, crunchy mineral and a light petroleum underlay. Medium-light bodied, flavours of lime, grapefruit and zest has a good core, along with orange blossom, lime flower, flows with crushed rock minerals and honey to a lengthy, refreshing finish. The acidity is racy, flows with great freshness and energy, carries the citrus flavours and mineral through the palate; a little dose of sugar sweetness balanced out the lively acidity leaves a smooth and round-edged mouthfeel. The wine is fresh and showing its vitality with a lively acid line and a concentrated fruit core with good intensity. Match with Korean fried chicken and Baja-style fish over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in stainless steel to 13% alc, 9 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $27
