Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Jun-2015
Full, brigh, light golden-yellow yellow colour with moderate depth, lighter edged. The nose is tightly bound with densely concentrated, rich aromas of ripe citrus fruits gently entwined with exotic florals, marmalade and honeysuckle, revealing fine toasty detail with time in the glass. This has much more to unfold. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate features soft, ripe, up-front citrus fruit and honied flavours along with nuances of exotic yellow florals. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with a fine phenolic line and discreet, lacy acidity guiding the palate. Honeysuckle and toasty notes emerge as the wine carries to a long, mellow finish with floral and sherbet-like hints. This is a soft, rich and gently succulent medium Riesling with citrus and honied flavours and toasty detail. Serve as an aperitif, with mildly spicy fare, or fruit over the next 5+ years. Late-picked fruit with a portion botrytis-affected, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc. and 25.6 g/L RS and TA 6.6 g/L. 18.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $30.00
