Dry River ‘Craighall’ Martinborough Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 24-Aug-2011
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues on edge, this has a softly fresh and full nose of concentrated, pure lime juices, white stonefruits and acacia florals, with richness and density. Dry to taste, the palate has elevated acidity providing raciness and zesty lime and apple-like flavours on a well-weighted palate with body, presence and concentration. The wine has very fine, smooth textures enlivened by the acidity which carries through to a sustained finish showing pure citrus fruit nuances. This should age well. Fruit from vines averaging 20 y.o. from the ‘Craighall' vineyard fermented to 11.8% alc. with 5 g/L rs. Match this racy, but substantial dry Riesling with seafood, especially shellfish over the next 6-8+ years. 18.0+/20 Aug 2011 RRP $45.00
