Pyramid Valley ‘Growers Collection’ ‘Rose Family Vineyard’ Marlborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Jun-2017
Bright, even, pale golden-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is deep and elegantly concentrated with aromas of ripe citrus fruits including limes and lemons along with yellow florals and spice notes. This is essence of Riesling with power, intensity and purity. Medium-dryish to taste, the palate has great depth, densely packed and penetrating flavours of limes and lemon, citrus zest with ripe yellow florals, honey and spices, and suggestions of minerals. The palate is driven by alcoholic power, with crisp, lacy acidity providing some tension. The palate line is fine-textured, but shows the alcohol warmth and generosity. The flavours of citrus fruit and honey are bold and are carried to a strong, long, finish. This is a very full and powerful off-dry Riesling with great fruit intensity of citrus, floral and honied flavours, immense concentration and line. Match with Chinese cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit from 35 y.o. vines from the ‘Rose Family’ vineyard, hand-picked, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in tank without temperature control to 15.7% alc. and 12.7 g/L RS, TA 6.1 g/L. 450 cases made. 18.0+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $32.00
