Grava Martinborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Jun-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues. This has a gently full and voluminous nose with aromas of ripe lime fruit entwined with exotic florals and honey, and suggestions of marmalade botrytis, toast and minerals. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses moderately rich and lush flavours of limes, exotic florals, honey and toast with some botrytis detail and mineral complexity. This has a rounded and concentrated core and the wine flows along a light, phenolic-textured, fruit extract line. Balanced acidity lends a crisp, mouthwatering freshness and the wine finishes with lingering flavours of limes, honeysuckle and minerals. This is a moderately rich and exotic medium-dry Riesling with some textures and a mouthwatering mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc., 11 g/L RS, TA 7.2 g/L and pH 3.1. 18.5-/20 Jun 2016 RRP $29.90
