Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Oct-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is firm and tightly concentrated with deep and well-packed aromas of ripe lime fruit with an array of citrus fruit in support, unfolding exotic tropical fruits entwined with yellow florals. The fruit has a steely, mouthwatering mineral edge, and the componentry is all precision. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated, rich core of ripe lime fruit and white and yellow stonefruits, with nuances of tropical fruit and yellow florals. The palate has excellent drive and linearity, and plenty of presence and power carrying the rich, lusciously detailed flavours to a long, concentrated finish. This is a rich and concentrated medium Riesling with ripe lime and citrus fruit, stonefruits and tropical fruit, and florals that carry to a rich, luscious finish with plenty of drive and power. Match with Asian fare over the next 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 7.2 g/L and pH 2.93, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 6 months. 19.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $29.95
