Misha’s Vineyard Limelight Riesling 2017, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Jun-2020
Bright, light yellow with a slight green-golden hue, even throughout. The nose is softly full and delicate with aromas of an amalgam of citrus fruit, lime, lemon, grapefruit; entwined with honey and fresh herbs, along with a subtle note of petroleum. Medium-light bodied, off-dry, with a pure sense of citrus fruit, juice and skin, along with the sweetness of a just-ripe persimmon; honey with a slight hint of fresh herbs of dill and a flinty note. Acidity is mouthwatering, balanced the sugar sweetness, leaves a dry and refreshing mouthfeel with a light phenolic grip. The finish is lingering and mouthwatering. This is an off-dry Riesling with core flavours of citrus fruit, along with honey, herbs and flint on a light phenolic grippy mouthfeel, and finish with fresh, mouthwatering acidity. Match with pork belly with salty and crispy crackling over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed. 74% juice racked then fermented in stainless tanks. 26% wild fermented in older French oak barrels. 9% alc, 27 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts June 2020 RRP $30
