Nga Waka Martinborough Riesling 1993

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
Mount Pinatubo affected vintage, with a very long growing season, the Riesling picked latest on record. A tough wine with less than ideally ripe acidity for Roger. Full, deep, light golden yellow colour, this has a full, broad and complex bouquet with secondary and tertiary aromas. Densely packed burnished honey, toast and a little caramel. Dry to taste, full, soft and broad flavours of dried toast, butter and cream show with some nuttiness. The mouthfeel is soft, a little flat, the acidity more mellow than expected, giving some underlying drive. This is rounded and just beginning to dry a tad. Drink up now. 16.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
