Misha’s Limelight Riesling 2022, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 07-Nov-2023
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is vibrant, bursting with aromas of red apple, quince, floral perfume, citrus and spice. Medium-bodied, medium-dry to taste, aromas of red apple, quince and ripe citrus form a succulent core, unfolding lime peels, blossom and cardamom. The fruit is lush with multi-layers; spice on finish added interest. Citrus peels and stony minerals texture flow with mouth-watering acidity to a moreish, dry, flavoursome closing. Match with sausage with cheese and chicken liver pate over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, free run juice (61%) was fermented in stainless steel to 11% alc, 28g/l RS. The remaining juice was fermented naturally in older French oak. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $34
