Pegasus Bay ‘Encore’ Waipara Valley Noble Riesling 2016

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Sep-2017
Bright, golden-yellow with some depth, a little paler on the edge. This has an elegantly concentrated and intense nose with refined and beautifully penetrating aromas of exotic tropical fruits, orange and lime marmalade, honeycomb and nectar, along with a complexing layer of talc and musky botrytis, Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated core of ripe exotic tropical fruit, pineapple, with lime and orange marmalade, honey, and rich talc and musky botrytis. The palate has depth and unctuousness, balanced by fruit extract and fine phenolic textures, underlined by fresh, crisp acidity. This has strong drive and linearity, and the wine carries to a long, lingering finish of exotic fruits, honey, marmalade and musk. This is a deliciously rich and near-unctuous, concentrated Noble Riesling with exotic tropical fruits, marmalade, honey and musk on a driven, fine-textured palate. Serve with fruit and baked desserts, and crème caramel over the next 5+ years. Hand-picked fruit with full botrytis infection, selected over several passes of the vines, at 45°Brix, cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 177 g/L TS and TA 9.6 g/L. (375 ml) 19.0+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $40.00
