Hunter’s Marlborough Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Apr-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, very pale edged. The nose is softly concentrated with deep aromas of lime fruit and fragrant white florals entwined with notes of jasmine, talc and sherbet, unveiling subtle mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has soft, mouthfilling flavours of lime fruit and exotic florals along with subtle notes of talc, sherbet and minerals. The flavours grow in depth and concentration as it flows smoothly on a very fine-textured line. The acidity is fresh and integrated, and the wine carries to a vibrant, juicy, mouthwatering, sustained finish. This is a softly concentrated dry Riesling with lime and exotic florals on a very fine-featured palate. Serve with Asian fare over the next 4-5+ years. Rapaura fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 6.72 g/L RS, TA 7.6 g/L and pH 2.9. 18.5/20 Apr 2017 RRP $21.99
