Palliser Estate Martinborough Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Nov-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is well-concentrated with fine, firm and penetrating aromas of lime fruit with tangerine notes along with honey and musk, unfolding white florals and fresh mineral elements. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is taut with finely concentrated flavours of limes entwined with honey and musk, along with white florals and thirst-quenching minerals. The mouthfeel is crisp and zesty, with bright, lively acidity, the wine flowing along a fine-textured line, carrying to a lingering finish of limes, florals and minerals. This is a taut, crisp and lively dryish Riesling with lime. Honey, musk and floral flavours and mouthwatering mineral notes on a fine-textured line. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Om Santi’ and ‘Palliser’ sites, with some botrytis, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 8 g/L RS, TA 8.0 g/L and pH 3.00, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 18.5-/20 Nov 2017 RRP $25.00
