Fifth Bridge Central Otago Late Harvest Riesling 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 14-Nov-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter edged. Softly full and a little shy in expression, the nose is gently packed with aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruit along with honey, nectar and marmalade, with a layering of musky botrytis. A thread of refreshing minerality shows in the aromatics. Very sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate has a rich and luscious core of ripe tropical fruit and citrus fruit with notes of honey and nectar with musky botrytis. The flavours have an ethereal quality and open in volume, gently filling the palate. The mouthfeel is refreshing with lively acidity balancing the sweetness, and the wine carries easily to a musky, honied finish. This is a rich and luscious up-front, honied Late Harvest Riesling with ripe tropical and citrus fruit with musky botrytis on a palate with good freshness and balance. Match with fruit and baked desserts over the next 4 years. Late harvested fruit, the grapes with shrivel to raisins, cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 116 g/L RS, TA 8.88 g/L and pH 3.26. (375 ml) 18.0-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $29.95
