Riverby Estate ‘Eliza’ Marlborough Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Apr-2015
‘Eliza’ is a niece and passed down generational family name. A blend of the Dry Riesling and Noble Riesling wines, resulting in 13.0% alc., 40 g/L RS, and pH 3.04. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, lighter edged. The nose is initially shy, opening up to show breadth and depth, revealing aromas of yellow florals and citrus fruits melded with honey and marmalade and some subtle toasty complexities. Medium-sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features rich and ripe lime fruit flavours alongside honey, toast and marmalade. This has good fruit weight and extract , the mouthfeel showing phenolic textures and presence, balanced by fresh, lively, savoury acidity. The wine flows with good energy and underlying tension, unfolding complexing exotic floral and musky botrytis detail as it carries to a very long and sustained finish. This is a rich and complex medium-sweet Riesling with layers of citrus fruit, honey and toasty detail. Serve as an aperitif and with fruit and baked desserts over the next 4-5 years. 18.5/20 Apr 2015 RRP $24.00
