Domain Road The Water Race Dry Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Aug-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. This elegant bouquet has penetrating lime, grapefruit, apple and jasmine aromas. Medium-bodied, aromas of apple leading with lime, grapefruit and zest, jasmine uplifts and lingers with a hint of honey. The wine is beautifully balanced, with residual sweetness rounding the acid and providing a soft edge. Zesty spice and jasmine added layers and interest. This Dry Riesling is attractive and beautifully balanced with an appetising palate. Match with salmon cream cheese pate and pork rillette over the next 6+ years. Fruit from Defiance Vineyard on Felton Road, whole bunch pressed, fermented in stainless to 12.5% alc, 7.5g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $27
