New Zealand Riesling Challenge ‘Larry McKenna’ Waipara Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Nov-2017
18.0+/20), very elegant and fine, with taut and intense aromas of limes, honey and toast. On palate, wonderfully posed with rich and luscious flavours, balanced by bright and refreshing acidity. This is refines and sleek, but with a degree of decadence. Sweet and 9.0% alc. Larry McKenna is at The Escarpment Vineyard. 18.0+/20 Nov 2017 Very tight and shy, with light lime fruit aromas, somewhat spoiled by oxidation. Medium to taste, this had an amalgam of subdued lime fruit with oxidation marring and preventing the full expression. Not quite the liveliness, and residual sugar apparent. This may have had a faulty scewcap closure? ‘Sweet' on the IRF scale and at 9.0% alc. 55 g/L rs. Larry McKenna is at The Escarpment Vineyard, Martinborough.  15.5-/20 Mar 2011
