Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Dec-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very fresh and finely presented, showing moderately taut, but intense aromas of lime fruit along with exotic tangerine notes, lifted white florals, hint of sherbet and honeysuckle. Dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate is tightly bound with good intensity and depth of lime and tangerine fruit, entwined with aromatic white florals and sherbet notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and flowing, guided by soft textures with fresh, lacy acidity lending poise and a mouthwatering line. The wine carries to a dry finish with lime and floral flavours. This is an elegant dry Riesling with good depth and intensity of lime and exotic citrus fruits with a smooth-flowing, poised, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif and with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 4-5 years. Clone 239 fruit from one hectare, vines planted in 2010, cool-fermented to 10.2% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS, TA 7.2 g/L and pH 3.06. 18.0/20 Dec 2016 RRP $21.00
