Pisa Range Estate Riesling 2015, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 05-Jul-2022
Bright, medium yellow with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full, with aromas of lime, mandarin and citrus peel melded with dried floral, honey and a hint of savoury elements. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, a core of citrus fruit, lime, mandarin and peel extended by honey, dried floral, ginger and cereal; crunchy minerals draw a long line with acid tension to a savoury, crisp finish. The wine shows savoury development and complexity, supported by taut acid tension and core flow on an unctuous, chalky textured mouthfeel. This is a complex, textural, dry Riesling with a citrus, mineral core; savoury, spice development and a long chalky finish. Match with baked scallops and pancetta over the next 5 years. 100% Estate grown fruit, fermented to 12.5% alc, 2 g/l RS. 19/20 pts (95 pts) July 2022 RRP $28
