Lamont Bendigo Central Otago Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 01-Feb-2015
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemony-green hues, lighter on rim. This is very refined and elegant in expression with bright and lively lime fruit aromas alongside minerals forming a pure, steely and refreshing bouquet with great clarity. Dry to taste, tightly bound and concentrated flavours of limes infused with minerals show excellent fruit extract and refined phenolic textures. Delicate floral lift and subtle, savoury and toasty secondary complexities add detail and nuance. The palate is balanced by refreshing and mouthwatering acidity which carries the flavours to a very fine, long-lingering finish. This is a very tight and finely textured, refreshingly dry Riesling with lime and mineral clarity and subtle toastiness. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 4-5 years. Geisenheim clone 110 and 239 fruit, hand-picked and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.28% alc. and 4.14 g/L RS. The 10th vintage from this site. 18.5/20 Jan 2014 RRP $24.99
