Mon Cheval Riesling 2017, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 31-May-2021
Bright, pale yellow-gold with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is full and invigorating, nuances of citrus, clementine zest, jasmine tea melded with honeycomb. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of clementine, lime cordial and citrus zest have a concentrated core, adorned by jasmine tea fragrance, honey and a hint of hay. Refreshing acidity persists to a long, zesty, dry finish. Flavours have good concentration and intensity; refreshing acidity provides a lean and clean palate for the unnoticeable 35 g/l RS. Match with lemongrass and chilli pork chops and Thai-style steamed fish over the next 6+ years. Tank fermented to 11% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2021 RRP $27.50
