Floating Mountain ‘Maukatere’ Waipara Riesling 2007

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-May-2012
Brilliant straw-yellow colour, the bouquet is very fine, delicate and elegant, with detailed lime and floral fruit aromas revealing nuances of honey and minerals. Slightly sweet to taste, pure flavours of white florals, limes and minerals are presented with crisp, cutting acidity forming excellent drive and energy. A thread of phenolic texture supports the palate line, leading to a long and sustained racy finish with mineral and floral notes. This off-dry Riesling has purity and finesse and has the textures to match seafood dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Wild yeast fermented, 15% in old barrels to 11.0% alc. and 27 g/L rs. 18.0-/20 May 2012 RRP $24.95
