Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 01-Apr-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour with light lemon-green hues. This has a very fulsome and softly voluminous, but finely packed bouquet of exotic floral notes in a complex amalgam of limes, honey, toast and marmalade, showing excellent integration. Refreshing nuances of minerals emerge in the glass. Medium in sweetness, bright honied, lime and floral flavours are complexed by exotic jasmine, apricot and flinty flavours along with waves of toasty detail. The fruit is well-concentrated and rounded and smooth in the mouth, but enlivened by a little CO2 prickle and underlying brisk acidity. The palate has linearity with a little textural thread that carries the flavours through to a very long finish featuring honey and florals. This is a rich and exotic medium Riesling with citrus, honey and minerally flavours and some toasty complexities. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Estate Waipara Valley fruit with around 10% botrytis, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 26.7 g/L rs. 18.5/20 Apr 2013 RRP $27.95
