Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
A cooler vintage, the end of the effects of the Mount Pinatubo eruption in the Philippines. Brilliant light golden-yellow colour. The bouquet is one of great finesse and intensity, lifted ripe lime fruits and aromatic, fresh esters. The fruit is finely laced with toast and notes of kerosene, as well as honey. This has great focus and intensity with vibrant cut. Dry to taste, the palate exudes finesse and refinement. Beautifully poised citrus fruits, yellow florals, fresh and lively with delicate toast, caramel, honey nuance. The acidity provides great tension and energy. Just a touch of drying phenolics through the mid palate, but great length of limes, minerals, honey and toast on finish. This will go another 5-7+ years. 18.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
