Te Kairanga Martinborough Riesling 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Feb-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues. This has a delicate and restrained nose of lime fruit, lemonade, white florals and nuances of honeysuckle. The aromatics are youthfully fresh, bound and mouthwatering. Medium-dry and light-medium bodied, the palate is elegant and tightly concentrated, and still to unfold. Flavours of white florals, limes and minerals form a fine core and line. The acidity is very fine and soft, clearly showing low pH and the wine is guided by a subtle phenolic thread, leading to a long and sustained, taut, floral-nuanced finish. This is a youthfully tight, medium-dry Riesling with very fine floral and lime fruit, minerally detail, refined textures and taut mouthfeel. It will develop greater richness and complexity over the next 5+ years. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 6.43 g/L RS, TA 7.3 g/L and pH 2.97. 224 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Feb 2016 RRP $23.00
