Ruru Riesling 2019, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 14-Aug-2020
Bright, even, light straw-yellow with some depth. The nose is gently full with nuances of honeydew, apricot, lime cordial and honey, along with a light dusting of white pepper. Light-bodied, citrus flavours rush in with, lime, mandarin and pith has taken over, flows with salinity and a light note of white pepper on the finish. The acidity is vibrant and mouthwatering, flows with vitality on a slender phenolic texture line. The wine is youthful and bright, straight-forward showing purity of fruit and a refreshing acid line. Match with simple seafood dishes over the next 2 years. 17/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $24
