Domaine Rewa Riesling 2019, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Aug-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with some depth and a golden-green hue. The bouquet is gently perfumed with fragrances of orange blossom, orange peels, apricot, red apple entwined with honey and delicate spices. Medium-dry, the palate is soft and rich with flavours of toffee apple, orange caramel, apricot, mandarin, along with florals, mead and candied orange peels. Acidity is smooth and seamless, balanced the sugar sweetness effortlessly. There is an attractive rich tone of toffee apple, and caramel element broadens the mouthfeel and adds interest. The mouthfeel is elegant and delicate with a powdery phenolic texture line. This is a medium-dry Riesling with a perfect balance of sugar-acid and freshness; on a soft yet rich flavoured palate and a powdery texture line, full of delicious interests. Match this with crème caramel and chicken with chestnut over the next 6-8 years. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. Fermented in stainless steel to 11.7% alc, 24 g/l RS. 19+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $27
