Misha’s Vineyard Limelight Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 24-Apr-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a hint of green. The nose is fresh and packed with citrus, zest and spice. Medium-full bodied, medium-dry to taste, aromas of lime and mandarin melded with its zest, unfolding a hint of honey and jasmine. The wine is gentle yet vibrant with a citrus core, reflected on the mouthfeel with citrus pith and zesty texture. The sweetness is well-balanced, provides weight and roundness, and lends a moreish finish. Match with crispy pork belly and smoked fish brandade over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, free run juice (90%) was racked, inoculated and cool fermented in stainless steel. The remaining pressings juice fermented naturally in older French oak at warmer temperatures. 10.5% alc, 35 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $34
