Takutai Nelson Riesling 2009

Riesling from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 12-Apr-2012
Bright pale straw-yellow with lemon-green hues, pale on edge. The bouquet is very fine and elegant, showing lime and lemon aromas integrated with subtle secondary notes of honey and toast. Medium-dry, bright and juicy, lemon and lime fruit flavours form a core and line through the palate with depth and concentration. The acidity is in good balance, providing good liveliness. A delicate textural thread grows and leads to a crisp, dry finish with flavours of thirst-quenching lemonade. Classical with its lime and lemon flavours, this is just beginning to show some development and a dry textures. Match with seafood over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ‘Hunter' vineyard on the Waimea Plains, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 10.8 g/L rs. 17.0/20 Apr 2012 RRP $12.50
