Domaine Rewa Riesling 2018, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Aug-2020
Bright, even, light yellow-green. The nose is gently upfront with tropical aromas of pineapple, melon, along with stonefruit, lime sherbet; entwined with white florals, nettle and perfume dusting of phenolic. Medium-dry, medium-bodied with flavours of mango, melon, pineapple bridging lime sherbet and lemon; along with honeyed cordial, nettle and white florals. Mouthwatering acidity softly flows with dusty, chalky, waxy texture line. The acid cut through the sugar sweetness provides balance and reflects the wine on the palate like a magnifying glass. The finish is refreshing with salinity and bitterness balance lingers for a long minute with excellent fruit intensity. This Riesling has well-balanced sugar-acid with flavours of tropical fruit and citrus, along with subtle floral, nettle details and a textural palate. Match with Thai green mango salad and grilled chicken with harissa over the next 5-6 years. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. Fermented in stainless steel to 11.6% alc, 24 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $27
