Greystone ‘Feather Star’ Waipara Valley Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 17-Oct-2011
Fruit from ‘Block 4' of the ‘Greystone' vineyard WBP and fermented to 8.5% alc. and 50 g/L rs. Bright, very pale straw colour with green hues and a pale edge. The nose is extremely fine and delicate showing white acacia florals, lime and mineral aromas with complexing herb and seaside nuances. Medium in sweetness, this has soft, juicy and lush fruit flavours of lacy florals with some honeysuckle succulence. The fruit is subtle, near ethereal, dancing across a light, but vibrant and racy palate. The finish is very long and persistent with gentle white florals. A wonderful aperitif wine which will also match Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. 19.0-/20 Oct 2011 RRP $24.95
