Palliser Estate Martinborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Sep-2015
Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is very fresh, elegant and pure in expression with aromas of limes, white florals and a suggestion of honeysuckle entwined with delicate, mouthwatering mineral elements. The fruit builds in depth and penetration with a positive core with aeration. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features gently succulent fruit flavours of limes, lifted by white florals, and enriched by delicate honeysuckle notes. Thirst-quenching, chalky mineral notes provide balancing dryness and cut, and the wine follows a very fine-textured line with ripe, integrated acidity, leading to a soft, dry, long lingering finish of florals and limes. This is an aromatic, off-dry Riesling with delicate lime, floral and honeysuckle richness and soft, mouthwatering acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with mildly spicy Asian cuisine over the next 5+ years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Om Santi’ and ‘Palliser’ vineyards, vines 10 and 18 y.o., indigenous yeast fermented for two-thirds of ferment then inoculated, to 11.9% alc., 7.7 g/L RS, pH 2.93, the wine on primary lees for 3 months. 18.5/20 Sep 2015 RRP $22.85
