Te Whare Ra ‘Single Vineyard 5182’ Marlborough Riesling ‘D’ 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Nov-2014
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, very light on rim. This has a refined and softly full nose with concentrated aromas of lifted yellow florals and citrus fruits interwoven with subtle nuances of honeysuckle and thirst-quenching minerals. This has presence and intensity allied to finesse. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, a tight, mouthwatering core of florals, limes and minerals is the feature on palate. The flavours show great purity and focus, enlivened by soft acidity and underlined by refined phenolic textures. This has excellent fruit extract and the wine flows with vitality and drive, leading to a vibrant and long, lingering finish with floral, citrus and quinine-like elements. This is a concentrated, pure and focussed dry Riesling with vitality and thirst-quenching minerality. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 5-7 years. Fruit from vines planted in 1979, hand-picked and sorted, destemmed with a portion WBP, and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.8 g/L RS, TA 7.2 g/L and pH 3.0. Certified BioGro organic. 820 cases made. 19.0/20 Nov 2014 RRP $28.00
