Rimu Grove Nelson Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 17-Feb-2015
Pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is delicate and gentle with fresh lime and floral aromas, along with subtle honey and toasty notes. This is soft and detailed. Medium-dry to taste, light fruit flavours of green apples, limes and florals are expressed with some succulence and lusciousness. The palate has suggestions of honey and toast. The mouthfeel is refreshing with pin-point acidity lending finesse and focus to the palate. This is fine in textures and has beauty with elegance. The wine will develop over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from the Moutere clays and Waimea Plains, hand-picked and partially destemmed, given some skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 18 g/L RS, TA8.5 g/L and pH 2.98 18.0+/20 Feb 2015 RRP $24.99
