Luna Martinborough Riesling 2018

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Oct-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the edge. This has a well-concentrated, intense nose with rich aromas showing an array of exotic citrus fruits, with limes and tangerines, unfolding hints of honeysuckle and florals. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and up-front aromatic flavours of exotic florals and citrus fruits with hints of honeysuckle. The fruit flavours are mouthfilling and are enlivened by crisp, refreshing acidity, and the wine flows along a soft-textured line of fruit extract and light phenolics, leading to an aromatic finish. This is a rich, up-front medium-dry Riesling with exotic citrus and floral flavours, with honeysuckle notes and a fine-textured palate with crisp acidity. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Eclipse’ vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace, WBP and cool-fermented in tank to 12.0% alc. and 13 g/L RS, TA 6.5 g/L and pH 3.1. 18.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $24.00
