Hunter’s Marlborough Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Mar-2015
Very pale straw-colour with slight green hues, very pale on rim. The nose is refined and initially shy in expression showing pure lime and lemon fruit aromas along with white florals and mineral clarity. This is all subtlety and finesse. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a tight core of focussed lime and lemon fruit flavours. Subtle white floral detail is present, along with mouthwatering mineral notes. The wine is fresh, bright and lively with lacy acidity lending excellent tension and energy, and providing linearity for the fine textures to follow and carry to a refined, delicately nuanced finish. This is a tightly bound, refined, pure and dry Riesling with mouthwatering linearity. Serve as an aperitif, and with seafood over the next 4-5+ years. Wairau Valley fruit cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Mar 2015 RRP $20.99
