Pegasus Bay ‘Aria’ Waipara Valley Late Picked Riesling 2014

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 02-Dec-2015
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, pale edged. The nose is elegant and slender in proportion, but well concentrated with aromas of lime, lemon and tangerine fruit entwined with exotic flowers and a thread of marmalade, honey, any musky-talc botrytis. This has delicacy and finesse and is beautifully integrated. Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, gently luscious flavours of exotic citrus fruits and florals flow with honey, musk and talc botrytis along a very fine textured, lively line. This has excellent acidity and tension to match the unctuousness, and the wine carries with brightness and energy to a very long moderately sweet and luscious finisf of citrus fruits and musk. This is a beautifully elegant and harmoniously entwined late-pick Riesling with exotic citrus and musk flavours and excellent freshness. Serve as an aperitif and withbaked or fruit desserts over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit primarily from ungrafted vines over 25 y.o., with botrytis infection, cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 84 g/L RS, and TA 7.8 g/L. 19.0-/20 Dec 2015 RRP $39.00
