River T Dry Riesling 2020, Waitaki Valley

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 09-Sep-2021
Bright, light straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is soft with a citrus overtone, along with subtle floral and stonefruit nuances. Medium-bodied, bone-dry to taste, aromas of clementine, yuzu and its zest linger with white spice and lime flower. The fruit has a ripe core, showing intensity and concentration, adorns by subtle white spice on the closing. The palate is zesty and crisp; vibrant acidity carries stony minerals to a lingering finish. This is a zesty Riesling with bright citrus flavours and a stony mineral drive. Match with steamed clams and beer-battered blue cod over the next 5+ years. Barrel-fermented to 12.6% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $36
