Pegasus Bay Riesling Aged Release 2011, Waipara

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Apr-2021
Bright, even, deep yellow-gold. The nose is soft and mellow with intensity and power, penetrating nuances of mandarin, marmalade, and zest interweave beeswax, dried apricot and a hint of gingernut. Full-bodied, off-dry to taste, complex aromas of marmalade, dried apricot, mandarin and zest have a bright core and flavour; beeswax, nuts and cereal unfold as the wine aerated, linger with warming ginger spice to linearity. The wine has good flavour concentration, showing immense complexity and breadth; mouthwatering acidity support length and vitality, integrated, flowing with great energy; sweetness added palate weight and a rounding mouthfeel. This Riesling has developed brilliantly, complex and full of interest showing strength and grace. Match with crispy pork belly and salted cod stew over the next 5 years. Handpicked, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc, 21.5 g/l RS. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $40
