Main Divide Waipara Valley Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-May-2017
Bright, even, light golden-hued yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The bouquet is firmly concentrated and solid in presentation with aromas of honey, talc, musk and marmalade from botrytis, underlined by subtle notes of ripe, but fresh citrus fruits. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate features flavours of honey, talc, musk and lime marmalade that unfold to fill the mouth, lending presence and weight. The flavours are balanced by underlying acidity that provides poise and tension, and the wine flow with good acid energy, carrying to a long finish of talc and musk botrytis with underlying citrus fruit nuances. This is a rich medium-sweet Riesling with mouthfilling talc and musky botrytis flavours underlined by citrus notes on a poised palate with good acid vibrancy. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 3-4 years. Waipara Valley fruit late-picked with 60% botrytis and cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 20.3 g/L RS, ta 6.6 g/L. 17.5+/20 May 2017 RRP $20.99
