Nga Waka Martinborough Riesling 2005

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
A short, hot season, a small crop of ‘tough’ wines. Bright, pale straw colour with lemony hues. This is very fine and firmly concentrated on nose, refine secondary toast development showing, ith some classiness. Dry to taste, high acidity backs tightly concentrated lime and lemon notes. Toast and succulence unfolds to become broader on mid-palate, the linearity carried by some phenolic textures. Becomes a little matty, broad and diffuse on finish, the acidity soft, and the wine showing a little dryness. Though developing breadth, this has a firm core. Drinking well now – 4 years. 17.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $N/A
