Grower’s Mark ‘Rivenhall Vineyard’ Marlborough Bone Dry Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Dec-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, lighter on the rim. This has a firm and well-concentrated nose with a fine core of lime and citrus fruits harmoniously melded and integrated with minerals, honey and toasty notes, along with some complexing kerosene secondary development and oxidative nuances. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is tightly concentrated with a firm core of lime fruit entwined with complexing flavours of honey, toast, minerals and kerosene. This has a thirst-quenchingly dry mouthfeel with a fine-textured phenolic line and crisp, balancing acidity providing drive, tension and energy. The wine has a mouthwatering dry grip that carries to a very long, taut finish of lime, toast and kerosene. This is a tightly concentrated bone-dry Riesling with firm flavours of limes, toast, minerals and kerosene on a thirst-quenching, textured palate. Serve as an aperitif and seafood over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from Donna Anderson’s ‘Rivenhall’ vineyard, high in the Brancott Valley, cool-fermented to 11.8% alc. and total dryness, TA 8.2 g/L and pH 3.0. 18.0/20 Dec 2016 BRRP $16.99
