Main Divide Riesling 2018, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Feb-2021
Bright, light yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full, penetrating citrus aroma, stonefruit, honey and a hint of kerosene added interest. Medium-full bodied, med-dry to taste, apricot, lime, mandarin have a strong core, entwined with zesty spice, honey and a hint of white spice. The palate is voluminous and generous, packed full with flavours; mouthwatering acidity and sweetness compliments and added depth to the palate and linger to an uncloying, refreshing juicy finish. This is a well-balanced Riesling, an over-achiever; packed full of ripe fruit components and complexity, a carnival on the palate. Match with Sichuan Mouth-watering chicken and spicy cuisine over the next 5 years. 12.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $20.99
