Ruru Riesling 2022, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Nov-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a green sheen. The nose is fresh with filigreed aromas of orchard fruit, white floral and a touch of honey, underpinning sage and lime. Medium-light bodied, dry-ish to taste, aromas of apple and pear intermixed with lime, lime flower, honey and sage. Subtle mandarine peels and apple skins add texture and interest. Poised acidity carries to linearity and brings out a mineral aspect. This dry Riesling is expressive with layers of primary flavour and texture, lending a long, crisp finish. Match with marinated mussels and salted cod over the next 4+ years. Fermented to 11.8% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $25
