Misha’s Vineyard Lyric Riesling 2019, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Jun-2020
Bright, even, light yellow with a slightly green hue. The nose is youthful and softly presented with flavours of lime, green apple, along with honey richness and spices, underlying crunchy stone mineral. The honey nuance becomes more pronounced as it aerated, accompanied by lime flowers. Light-bodied, dry to taste, with flavours of lime, mandarin and green apple, melded with honey and delicate spices, alongside a fine layer of crunchy minerals. The mouthwatering acidity is well-balanced with a little sugar sweetness, flows with good energy; high toned acid with lots of freshness but not austere; carries flavours of lime and green apple with its skin through a delicate and slender phenolic grip to linearity. The palate is soft, with a concentration of flavours and aromas. This is a dry Riesling with intensity and structure, carries aromas of lime and green apple, along with honey and crunchy minerals to a lingering finish. Match with clams and oysters over the next 4-6 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed. 75% juice racked then fermented in stainless tanks. 25% wild fermented in older French oak barrels. 12.5% alc, 4 g/l RS. 19/20 pts June 2020 RRP $30
