Spy Valley Marlborough Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Sep-2011
100% Riesling from the ‘Johnson Estate' fermented to 12.5% alc. and 8.9 g/L rs, a portion in seasoned oak. Bright, light lemon-straw yellow with green hues, this has a softly fresh bouquet of lime fruit, yellow florals, with notes of sherbet and honey. Dry to taste, the palate has concentrated flavours of limes with hints of honey, sherbet and perfumed talc characters, the richness balanced by crisp acidity, resulting in soft, and very fine textures which lead to a sustained, dry, minerally finish. This is a dry and finely textured Riesling with an intriguingly rich array of aromatics and flavours that is drinking well already. The wine will match Asian cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. 18.5-/20 Sep 2011 RRP $22.95
