Nga Waka Martinborough Riesling 1995

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
A good vintage in Martinborough, not too dissimilar to 1996, but with some rain, not a deluge as it was in Marlborough. The fruit with botrytis. Deepish, light golden yellow colour. The nose is soft fine and positive with toast, honey and kerosene aromas, just a suggestion of oxidation, but still in good condition. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours a little dull and flat in expression. Burnished honey and slight caramel notes from tertiary development and botrytis. The fruit sweetness receding, leaving a stolid, grainy, dry texture. Still drinking, but drink up. 16.0+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
