Domaine Rewa Riesling 2017, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Aug-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with some depth and a slightly green hue. The nose is gently complexing with aromas of beeswax, honey, interweaved mandarine, lime, stonefruit, along with fresh herbs, minerals and salinity, a gentle swift of petroleum, and an attractive dusty phenolic. Medium-dry, an excellent concentration of stonefruit, mandarine and lime, lifting notes of fresh herbs melded with beeswax and honey. Medium-bodied, the palate has great intensity, flows along with citrus pith, chalky minerals on a waxy textured mouthfeel. Taut acidity carries chalky texture and pith through the palate; it's thirst-quenching and textural, brings to a dry finish. This is a thirst-quenching Riesling with a great deal of concentration, complexing flavours and textural mouthfeel. Match with pork sausages with fennel and Thai green curry over the next 6-8 years. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. Fermented in stainless steel to 10.6% alc, 21 g/l RS. 19/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $27
