Martinborough Vineyard ‘Manu’ Martinborough Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Jun-2018
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and refined with elegant and harmoniously melded aromas of lime and lemon fruit with subtle musky botrytis notes and a hint of spice, unfolding honeysuckle and savoury minerals. This has freshness at the core. Medium-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a fresh, tightly bound heart with a rounded core of lime and lemon fruit with honeysuckle, ginger and musky notes. The mouthfeel is soft with a fine fruit-extract texture, and the wine is underlined by soft, lacy acidity. The flavours flow with positive energy to a lingering finish. This is a softly concentrated, rounded medium-dry Riesling with lime and lemon fruit and honey and musk detail on a fine-textured palate line with lacy acidity. Match with Asian fare over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Jackson Block’, vines 28 y.o., with approx. 10% botrytis, fermented in stainless-steel to 10.5% alc. and 15 g/L RS, TA 8.7 g/L and pH 2.86, the wine aged 4 months on lees. 18.0+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $28.00
