Ruby Bay Nelson Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 09-Jun-2016
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the edge. This has a very fresh, tightly bound nose of focussed and intense, pure lime fruit aromas with attractive floral and mouthwatering, wet stone mineral detail. Suggestions of toasty nuances unfold in the glass. Medium-dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate features a tautly concentrated core of lime fruit, white florals and minerals. The mouthfeel is fine and soft-textured, and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. This has linearity, and the wine leads to a slender, long lingering finish of limes, minerals and florals. This is a crisp, taut and slender, pure off-dry Riesling with lime and minerally flavours. Match with seafood, and Thai, Japanese and Vietnamese fare over the next 4 years. Fruit from the Ruby Bay vineyard cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc., and approx. 12 g/L RS, TA 8.3 g/L and pH 3.15. 17.0+/20 Jun 2016 RRP $22.00
