Mud House Waipara Valley Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 07-May-2017
Even straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is very fresh, tight and a little steely in expression, with aromas of ripe lime fruit entwined with jasmine and exotic florals, unfolding honeysuckle elements. Medium in sweetness and light-medium bodied, the palate possesses bright, vibrant, ripe fruit flavours of limes with exotic florals, jasmine and honeysuckle. The fruit richness and sweetness is balanced by crisp, refreshing and lively acidity, and the wine flows along a finely concentrated line, leading to an elegant, lingering, off-dry finish of exotic fruits and florals, with honied notes. This is a rich exotic-fruited medium Riesling with bright, refreshing acidity and a fine, lingering, off-dry finish. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Deans’ and ‘The Mound’ vineyards, a portion given 6-12 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in tank to 12.5% alc. and 28 g/L RS, TA 8.3 g/L and pH 3.2. 18.0+/20 May 2017 RRP $14.99
