Nga Waka Martinborough Riesling 2000

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
Regarded as one of the best vintages for Roger and Mike at Nga Waka, called the ‘Goldilocks’ year, where everything was not too big, nor too small, and it just got better. A classic year. Bright, light straw-yellow colour. Very elegant and refined on nose initially, with toast secondary notes, unfolding to show nutty oxidation and savoury tertiary elements to the bouquet. Dry, soft and mellowed out on palate, the mouthfeel even. Somewhat dried out, the fruit modest in sweetness, becoming drier as it progresses along the palate line. Oxidation and nutty overtones, but still with residual toast and honied elements. Slightly bitter with buttered toast on finish. A poor cork, ruining what should have been a much better wine. 16.5-/20Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
