Misha’s Vineyard Lyric Riesling 2022, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 07-Nov-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a light green hue. The nose is gently full and bright, with aromas of apple, lime, lime blossom and zest. Medium-bodied, bone-dry to taste, aromas of red apple and lime entwined with blossom, zest and saline. The fruit shows concentration and zingy acidity rushed through a refined mouthfeel, enlivening the palate with precision and length, carrying an appetizing finish. Match with steamed clams and grilled swordfish over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, after a few hours of skin contact, whole bunch pressed, 69% of the juice was fermented cool in stainless steel to dry, 31% was fermented spontaneously in French oak barrels. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $24
