Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Oct-2018
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with slight green hues and some depth, paler on the edge. The nose is very elegant and a little slender in proportion with fresh, fine, poised aromatics showing lime fruit, white florals, with some honey, toast and herb nuances. This has delicacy, but builds some depth with aeration along with a steely edge. Some secondary development is emerging. Medium in sweetness and light-medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and slender, and fine proportions showing light lime fruit and white florals, with honey and toast. A little secondary savouriness adds to the interest. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with bright acidity, and the wine flows along a slim line leading to a light, nuanced finish. This is an elegant, refreshingly vibrant medium Riesling with slender structure, just developing savoury secondary complexities now. Serve as an aperitif over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ’Ashmore’ vineyard, WBP and half fermented in tank and half indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 12.0% alc., 20 g/L RS, TA 8.1 g/L and pH 3.10, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 5 months. 18.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $29.95
