Staete Landt ‘Rudi’ Marlborough Riesling Dry 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jul-2014
Fruit from 6 rows, from vines planted in 2005, hand-picked, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.3% alc. and 3.4 g/L RS, TA 8.4 g/L and pH 3.06, the wine aged 7 months in seasoned oak. Bright straw-yellow with lemon-gold hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet is elegantly concentrated with deep, complex, secondary aromas of lime fruit melded with layers of toast, honey and cream, the nose with fresh floral nuances providing detail and lift. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, bright, rich, lusciously juicy fruit flavours of citrus fruits, honey and toast are bolstered by a firm, grainy phenolic line and crisp, mouthwatering acidity. The flavours are complex and juxtapose sweetness with savouriness. Some creaminess balances the textural robustness and the wine flows to a dry, firm and brisk finish. This is a complex, fine, but firmly textured, dry Riesling with flavours of limes, honey, toast and cream. Serve as an aperitif, with rich seafood and poultry dishes over the next 4+ years. 320 cases made. 18.0+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $25.00
