Nga Waka Martinborough Riesling 1999

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
A hot year, not as hot or as dry as 1998. Full, deep, golden yellow colour. The bouquet is very full, soft and even with real breadth, with integrated aromas of savoury wild honey, toast and nuts, the aromatics well into their tertiary phase. The spark of life has faded and this appears a little flat on nose. Dry to taste, this has a tight and complex amalgam on palate. The flavours of honey and toast are fully mature and interwoven. This shows better on palate than nose, the smoothness and seamlessness a feature. The acidity is soft, and there’s a little dryness, all leading to a savoury, honied finish that fades a little. A little oxidation is apparent. Drink well now and indeed drink up. 17.5-/20 Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
