Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Oct-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues and some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full and voluminous with beautifully fragrant aromas of white and yellow florals, lime fruit, exotic tropical fruit notes, and a suggestion of toast and honey. This id beautifully presented and grows in detail with aeration. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and lively, but soft and fine-textured, with an array of fragrant citrus fruits and florals, with exotic tropical nuances. The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant, near vigorous with plenty of energy, and the wine flows along a light, very fine-textured line with mouthwatering acidity. As the wine flows, an array of exotic aromatics unfold along with honied elements carrying to a sustained finish. This is a beautifully aromatic medium Riesling with an array of fragrant fruits and florals, with a lively bright, vibrant palate with a very fine line and fresh acidity. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ’Ashmore’ vineyard, WBP and half fermented in tank and half indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 12.5% alc., 20 g/L RS, TA 7.8 g/L and pH 2.95, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 6 months. 19.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $29.95
