Greystone Waipara Valley North Canterbury Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Nov-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow with slight golden tints, pale on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a taut and fine core of lime and lemonade fruit along with honied notes, white florals and saline elements entwined with minerals. Medium-dry to medium to taste, and light-medium bodied, the palate has deeply intense and penetrating flavours of sweetly ripe citrus fruits melded with exotic white florals, honied and musk notes and mineral detail. The mouthfeel is bright, lively and zesty, with fresh, lacy acidity, the wine flowing along a smooth, unctuous line with some fine, balancing textures. The wine carries to a long and sustained finish of stonefruits and honey. This is a beautifully intense, medium-dry Riesling with exotic citrus, floral and honied flavours on an unctuous, but refreshing palate. Serve with fresh fruit or mildly spicy Asian fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from three blocks, over 4 passes, yielding15% botrytis, fermented to 12.0% alc. and 22.3 g/L RS, TA 8.43 g/L and pH 3.13. Certified AsureQuality organic. 18.5+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $27.00
