Pegasus Bay BEL CANTO Dry Riesling 2023, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 01-May-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow with a slight green hue. This has a rich bouquet with softly penetrating aromas of citrus, pickled ginger, blossom, and tropical fruit notes. Full-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of lemon, lime and mandarin intertwined with pineapple, stonefruit, magnolia, pickled ginger and honeycomb. The generous fruit shows depth and layers, unfolding citrus peels and honeycomb. Tangy acidity and fine phenolics provide structure, lending a long, rich and moreish palate. This dry and complex style of Riesling is ready to mingle with multi-layers and textures. Match with lemon chicken and game fish over the next 6+ years. Only produced in exceptional vintages, extended hang time and hand-selected with a portion of botrytis-affected grapes, fermented cool to 13.9% alc, 5.3 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2024 RRP $40
