Mondillo Central Otago Riesling 2018

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 26-Sep-2018
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is elegant and delicate with finely concentrated and intense aromas of limes, lemonade and tangerines harmoniously entwined with exotic florals, a little honeysuckle and musk, and a touch of saline minerality. This has aromatic beauty. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is gently rich with exotic flavours of limes, lemonade and citrus fruit with exotic florals, honeysuckle and a little sherbet and musk, with thirst-quenching mineral nuances. The palate is poised with the soft richness balanced by crisp acidity, and the wine is carried with good energy and tension to a long, lingering finish of florals and honey. This is a gently rich dry Riesling with exotic citrus, floral, honied and musky flavours on a poised palate with crisp acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4 years. Clean Riesling fruit from the ‘Mondillo’ vineyard, WBP and cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 5.69 g/L RS, TA 7.5 g/L and pH 3.20. 18.5+/20 Sep 2018 RRP $28.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
