Main Divide Riesling 2023, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Jul-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow with depth and a green sheen. The nose is full, with lush aromas of mango, kumquat, sweet floral, honey and citrus. Medium-full bodied, medium-dry to taste, aromas of mango entwined with kumquat, honey, frangipani and citrus zest. The flavours are complex and lightly savoury; honey richness and fruit weight provide substance flows along a zingy acid line. This rich, medium-dry style Riesling is complex with tropical and citrus lead, enriched by honey and savoury botrytised elements, driving a charming, long finish. The grapes were picked in stages; some parcels were left to hang and harvested with a portion of noble botrytis. The free run juice was cool-fermented 12% alc, 24 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jul 2024 RRP $21.99
