Pegasus Bay Encore Noble Riesling 2017, North Canterbury

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 16-Dec-2022
Bright, medium-gold colour, even colour throughout. This has an intense, voluminous bouquet packed with honey, bubble gum, spice, beeswax, marmalade and baked apple. Medium-bodied, luscious to taste, aromas of clementine, lime marmalade and baked apple melded with honey, ginger, beeswax and floral perfume. The mouthfeel is unctuous and voluminous; brilliant acidity attacks with freshness and tension provide a refreshing, extremely long finish. This Noble Riesling shows impressive arrays of flavour, strength and balance, lending an incredibly moreish, pleasing finish. Only produced in exceptional vintages, best berries selected in the winery from late-picked, noble botrytized fruit, gently pressed, fermented in tank over many months at low temperatures. 10.5% alc, 266 g/l RS. 19.5/20 pts (98 pts) Dec 2022 RRP $44 (375ml bottle)
