Misha’s Vineyard Limelight Riesling 2020, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 29-Nov-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a slight green sheen. The nose is softly full, with citrus, blossom, baked apple and spice aromas. Full-bodied, medium-dry to taste, aromas of grapefruit, mandarin and zest interweaved apple tarte tatin with cinnamon and nutmeg. The fruit is fresh with a depth of flavour; spices elevate and add complexity. Fine-textured phenolics add texture and a hint of savouriness; well-balanced acidity carries to a dry, moreish finish. This medium-dry style Riesling is appetizing, shows balanced acidity and sweetness with ripe fruit, spice and a moreish finish. Match with crispy pork belly and spicy calamari over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, free run juicy (73%) was racked, inoculated, and fermented cool in stainless steel, chilled to stop fermentation. The reminding pressings fermented in older French oak. 11.5% alc, 29 g/l RS. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $34
