Pegasus Bay ‘Bel Canto’ Waipara Dry Riesling 2009

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Mar-2011
Following on from the inaugural 2008 vintage, wild yeast fermented with the inclusion of late-harvest and botrytised material to 14.0% alc., and 8 g/L rs. Light golden colour, this has a powerful bouquet with ripe lime and yellow stonefruits, honey, and a touch of smoke and toast complexity. Dryish, but certainly rich, and with amazing depth of character, the wine retains freshness and acidity, and can be compared to the richer Austrian Riesling models. This should keep another 4-6+ years.  Mar 2011
