Misha’s Vineyard ‘Limelight’ Central Otago Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 05-Sep-2015
Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on edge. This has a beautifully pure and delicate nose with refinement and clarity of aromatics, showing white florals, lime fruit, rainwater detail with a complexing thread of minerals and flint. The intensity and depth build in the glass. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, the palate is delicately luscious with mouthwatering fruit flavours of white florals, limes, honeysuckle and minerals. The sweetness and very fine textures are finely balanced and poised, with lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel and lending a crisp, thirst-quenching freshness. The wine leads to a long finish of florals, limes and apples. This is a beautifully pure and delicate, and subtly luscious medium Riesling of balance, poise and freshness. Serve as an aperitif and with mildly spicy fare over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with 25% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 10.5% alc. and 33 g/L RS, TA 7.7 g/L and pH 2.84. 1,216 dozen made. 19.0+/20 Sep 2015 RRP $27.95
