Pegasus Bay ‘Bel Canto’ Waipara Valley Dry Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Sep-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the edge. The nose is elegant in proportion with rich and concentrated, well-packed aromas of ripe citrus fruits along with honey, marmalade and musk, unfolding exotic floral elements. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated, dense heart packed with harmoniously integrated flavours of ripe citrus fruits, marmalade, honeysuckle and musk. This has real body and presence, and the palate has a rounded and gently unctuous mouthfeel. The acidity is ripe and soft, providing underlying energy and drive, and the wine carries to a long, lingering finish of honey, citrus fruits and musk. This is a full and concentrated dry Riesling with ripe citrus fruits, honey, musk and marmalade botrytis flavours on a rounded, unctuous palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked bunches with at least 30% noble botrytis, cool-fermented in tank to 13.6% alc. and 7.2 g/L RS, TA 6.3 g/L. 18.5+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $35.00
