Riverby Estate ‘Sali’s Block’ Marlborough Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Apr-2015
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with light lemon hues and some depth, pale on rim. This has an elegant and shy nose with detailed aromatics, showing savoury citrus fruit aromas with yellow florals, saline minerals and toasty development notes. The aromatics grow in concentration and depth with aeration. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, subtle flavours of limes, yellow florals, savoury honeysuckle and toast are underlined by sweet and sour acidity. The acidity and a delicate phenolic line carry the wine with mineral nuances adding to the tension and energy. The mouthfeel is lively and poised, and the elegantly concentrated line carries to a long, sustained finish with savoury citrus and toasty notes. This is an elegantly restrained, off-dry Riesling with lime, honey and toasty flavours, enlivened by sweet and sour acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from ’Sali’s Block’ in the ‘Riverby’ vineyard, cool-fermented to 13.0% alc., 15 g/L RS, and pH 2.95. 17.5-/20 Apr 2015 RRP $21.00
