Pegasus Bay Riesling 2019, North Canterbury

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 02-Jul-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, lighter on the rim. The nose has concentration and poise, nuances of mandarin, green apple, lime zest entwined with lime flowers. Medium-full bodied, medium-dry to taste, a concentrated core of green apple, mandarin and zest, apricots melded with honey, lime flower enriched by pollen and a hint of ginger. The palate is vibrant and refreshing; invigorating acidity flows with light honey syrup, rounded the palate. Purity of fruit layered with charming spice and floral elements. This is a medium-dry Riesling with pure fruit, multilayered richness and precision. Match with salted cod brandade and pork rillette over the next 10 years. Handpicked ripe grapes with a portion of botrytis, cool-fermented to 12% alc, 28 g/l RS. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) July 2021 RRP $30
