Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Oct-2018
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh, tightly bound and taut, quite elegant in presentation, but to too slender, as this has intensity, showing an amalgam of white florals, subtle herb notes and integrated lime fruit with mineral nuances. Medium to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly expressed, fresh and bright fruit flavours of limes with notes of white florals and a little herb and honeysuckle. The fruit forms an elegant core with moderate richness and fresh lacy acidity providing good energy and vibrancy. The wine flows along a fine-textured line to a zesty, lingering finish. This is an elegant, tightly bound medium Riesling with vibrant lime fruit with white florals, herbs and honeysuckle showing some richness and good freshness. Serve as an aperitif 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 12.0% alc., 16 g/L RS, TA 7.8 g/L and pH 2.99, the wine aged on lees in barrel for 6 months. 18.5-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $29.95
