Pegasus Bay Aged Release Riesling 2013, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 10-May-2023
Bright, full, medium yellow-gold, even colour throughout. The nose is full and complex, with marmalade, citrus preserve, dried apricot, honeysuckle, beeswax, ginger and nutmeg aromas. Full-bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of lemon preserve, dried apricot intertwined with marmalade, honeysuckle, unfolding beeswax, crystalised ginger and nutmeg. The wine is complex, rich and refreshing; the acidity provides vitality and tension, buoyant spices linger to an extended finish. This 10-year-old Riesling shows strength and complex development with excellent concentration and length. Match with spice-rubbed pork ribs and Korean fried chicken over the next 5 years. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2023 RRP $45
