Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Oct-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The bouquet is soft and full, and with well-integrated componentry, all harmoniously melded, to show layers of an array of citrus fruits, with honey and toast, some mineral elements and complexing secondary development detail. The aromatics are softly full and broad. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate is smooth flowing and seamlessly integrated with flavours of lime fruit, honey, cream and toast. The flavours are stylishly restrained and softly presented and flow with gentle linearity. The acidity is balanced and integrated and the wine carries to a long, lingering, gently balanced finish. This is a beautifully integrated and harmonious medium Riesling with lime, honey and toasty flavours showing subtle secondary notes on a smooth, seamless palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ’Ashmore’ vineyard, WBP and half fermented in tank and half indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 12.9% alc., 20 g/L RS, TA 8.4 g/L and pH 3.00, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 4 months. 18.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $29.95Brilliant straw-yellow colour with some green-gold hues. This has a full and rich bouquet of lime juices and minerals with notes of jasmine and honey, quite broad in expression, yet with good depth. Off-dry to taste, the intense flavours of limes, exotic florals and minerals are braced by racy, sleek acidity. The wine has weight allied with a finesse resulting in extraordinary poise. The finish is long and concentrated, showing mineral and flinty nuances. Fruit from the ‘Ashmore' vineyard in Fairhall, hand-picked and WBP, 50% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French barriques to 12.9% alc. and 20 g/L rs. The wine was given 4 months lees contact. Reminiscent of Asace Riesling. Serve with antipasto and flavoursome Asian cuisine over the next 4-6 years. 18.5/20 Aug 2011 RRP $29.95
