Spring Creek Estate Marlborough Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Mar-2017
Bright, pale straw-yellow with pale green hues, near colourless on the edge. The nose is light and elegantly proportioned with aromas of lime fruit and subtle nuances of honeysuckle and talc, along with hints of white florals and herbs. This has delicacy of primary aromatics with some lift. Dryish to taste and light-medium bodied, this has lively, aromatic and penetrating flavours of limes, white florals, honeysuckle and talc. The flavours have depth and are underlined by fine-grained, dry phenolics, and the palate is enlivened by lacy acidity. The wine has good energy and linearity, carrying to a dry-textured, lingering finish. This is a lively, penetrating, aromatic dryish Riesling with lime and honeysuckle flavours with talc notes on a dry-textured palate. Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3+ years. Wairau Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 5.3 g/L RS. 17.0-/20 Mar 2017 RRP $15.99
