Misha’s Vineyard ‘Lyric’ Central Otago Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Apr-2011
This is the second dry Riesling from Misha's Vineyard. Pale straw colour with green hues, this has a striking, beautifully pure and fine bouquet of limes and orange blossom, attractively exotic in its expression. Dry to taste, this has excellent depth of steely, minerally lime fruit on front palate which nears richness, and a fine, tight, elegant and pure line. The textures are soft and ultra-refined, and the finish is long and sustained, showing nuances of florals, smoke and steel. Serve as an aperitif or with shellfish and subtle Asian cuisine. This will develop greater richness and depth over the next 6-8+ years. Fermented to 12.5% alc. and 5 g/L rs, 13% undergoing wild yeast fermentation in old oak. 343 cases made. 18.5-/20 Apr 2011 RRP $25.00
