Hunter’s Marlborough Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2017
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hue, lighter edged. The nose is very elegant with initially delicate and subtle aromas of lime fruit with floral and thirst-quenching mineral nuances. This is refined in expression, and gently blossoms with aeration. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a well-proportioned, concentrated core of lime and lemon fruit with white florals, hints of honeysuckle and mouthwatering mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is lively and refreshing with crisp acidity, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line of fruit extract and subtle phenolics. The wine carries to a long and sustained finish of citrus fruits and florals. This is an elegant and refined dry Riesling with concentrated lime and lemon flavours and mouthwatering mineral notes. Serve as an aperitif, and with Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from Rapaura and Brancott, cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 7.3 g/L RS, TA 9.3 g/L and pH 2.88. 18.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $21.99
