Te Whare Ra Marlborough Riesling ‘D’ 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Jun-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on edge. The nose is elegant and very refined, with tightly bound, pure and pristine aromas of delicate lime fruit, white florals, rain water, wet-stones and thirst-quenching minerals. The aromatics exude finesse, near-austerity and beauty. Dry to taste and refined in presentation, subtle lime, floral and minerally fruit flavours show with utter purity. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth with very fine phenolics guiding the flow, enlivened by ripe, soft acidity providing great poise and tension. The wine is seamless, leading to a delicate, refreshing and pristine finish. This is a beautifully refined, delicate and seamlessly posed dry Riesling. Serve as an aperitif and with delicate seafood dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘TWR Old Block’ from vines up to 35 y.o., a portion WBP, and all cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.3 g/L RS, TA 8.2 g/L and pH 3.0. Certified BioGro organic. 820 cases made. 19.0+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $28.00
