Misha’s Vineyard Lyric Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 29-Nov-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a tinge of green. The nose is fresh, bursting with citrus, zest and spice. Medium-bodied, aromas of lime, tangelo and grapefruit zest melded with blossom and grounded nutmeg. The fruit is ripe with concentrated flavour and texture. Integrated acid tension provides a lively palate and carries to linearity. This dry Riesling possesses a ripe, concentrated citrus core, zest and texture with well-balanced acid and persistence. Match with ceviche and crab linguine over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, 62% was racked, inoculated, and cool-fermented in stainless steel; the rest underwent spontaneous ferment in older French oak barrels. 13% alc, 5.3 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 (94 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $34
