Pegasus Bay Reserve Aria Late Picked Riesling 2022, North Canterbury

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Aug-2023
Bright, pale yellow with a light gold hue, even colour throughout. This has an intriguing, complex bouquet packed with aromas of flint, citrus, rich floral, honey and a suggestion of apricot. Full-bodied, aromas of lime sorbet entwined with preserved lemon, apricot in syrup, honey, honeysuckle and flint. The flavours are fresh, youthful, and dancing on the palate, reflecting invigorating acidity balancing with sweetness, which contributes to the breadth of depth of the mouthfeel and carries an appetising, moreish finish. This late-harvest Aria is vibrant and well-balanced. Match with chicken liver parfait and crispy pork belly over the next 10+ years. Only made in exceptional years, hand selected with 30-50% botrytised grapes, fermented cool to 11% alc, 107 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $45
