Pegasus Bay ‘Aged Release’ Waipara Valley Riesling 2007

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Jul-2017
Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler edged. The bouquet is very tightly bound with concentrated aromas of limes, exotic yellow florals, toast and nuances of honey and a subtle layering of kerosene adding to the complexity. This is still taut and has more to unfold and develop. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a crisp and taut, finely concentrated core and line of lime fruit entwined with exotic yellow florals, toast and kerosene elements. The flavours unfold in layers, showing secondary complexities, blossoming to fill the mouth. The palate is vibrant and lively with refreshing acidity, providing drive and linearity, the flavours carrying to a long and sustained finish of exotic florals and citrus fruits, and toast, with a touch of grip. This is a taut, concentrated medium-dry Riesling with complex secondary flavours of exotic florals, toast, citrus fruits and a touch of kerosene on a bright palate finishing dry. A wine to serve as an aperitif, or just enjoy marvelling at the complex development over the next 3-4 years. Waipara estate fruit cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 29 g/L RS and TA 7.3 g/L. 19.0+/20 Jul 2017 RRP $40.00
