Spy Valley Marlborough Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jun-2015
Bright straw-yellow with green-gold hues, paler on edge. The nose is fresh with tightly bound aromas of fragrant lime and lemon fruit infused with wet-stone minerals and a mouthwatering flinty note, along with nuances of steel and smoke. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, soft and restrained flavours of lime fruit are harmoniously entwined with lemon, honeysuckle, sherbet and minerals. The textures are soft and the palate features a smooth flowing line. The acidity is ripe, lending gentle poise, and the wine leads to a delicately nuanced finish of rainwater and minerals. This is a soft and elegant dry Riesling with gentle lime and mineral flavours and a pure, smooth-flowing line. Serve as an aperitif over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Johnson Estate’ fermented in tank and old oak partially by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and 2.6 g/L RS, TA 7.1 g/L and pH 3.05, a portion going through MLF. 17.5+/20 Jun 2015 RRP $22.00
