Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 16-Mar-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on the edge. The nose os fresh with softly presented aromas of lime and lemon fruit with subtle notes of tangerines, herbs and jasmine florals, unveiling suggestions of lime marmalade, honeysuckle and musk. The aromatics form a rounded, but concentrated core. Medium-dry to medium in taste and medium-bodied, the palate features softly rich and luscious flavours of lime, lemon and tangerines with yellow florals, lime marmalade, honey and subtle musk notes. The fruit richness is restrained in expression and balanced by a very fine phenolic thread and lacy, refreshing acidity providing linearity and flow. The wine carries smoothly to an elegant, long lingering finish. This is an elegantly rich and luscious medium Riesling with lime, lemon and marmalade flavours with jasmine floral, honeysuckle and musk detail, and a fine-textured, refreshing palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 5+ years. Late-picked fruit with 5% botrytis infection, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 26 g/L RS, TA 7.3 g/L. 18.5+/20 Mar 2017 RRP $30.00
