Spring Creek Estate Marlborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Mar-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler edged. This has an elegant nose with moderately firm and penetrating steely aromas of lime fruit melded with toast and subtle notes of honey and minerals, building to show some depth. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has gently mouthfilling flavours of lime, honey and toast. The fruit is beginning ro show the beginnings of secondary development. The mouthfeel has light, grainy phenolic textures with balanced, lacy acidity that carries the flavours to a long and lingering finish with nuances of lime, honey and toast. This is a moderately mouthfilling dry Riesling with lime, honey and toasty flavours, some secondary interest and a grainy, phenolic line. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 3 years. Wairau Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 5.3 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Mar 2017 RRP $15.99
