Domain Road The Water Race Dry Riesling 2020, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 07-Nov-2022
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is focused and vibrant with lime, mandarin and zest aromas, along with citrus blossom and minerals. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, aromas of lime, mandarin and zest intertwined with savoury minerals and citrus floral. The fruit shows concentration; fine-textured minerals carried by acid tension to linearity. This dry, vibrant Riesling shows excellent tension with citrus backbone and minerals with an extended finish. Match with steamed blue cod and braised pork belly over the next 10 years. Handpicked from Defiance vineyard, destemmed and crushed, pressed to stainless steel tank and cold settled, inoculated with selected wine yeast and fermented to 12.5% alc, 7.7g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $27
