Te Whare Ra ‘Single Vineyard 5182’ Marlborough Riesling ‘D’ 2016

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Jun-2017
Brilliant pale straw colour with slight green hues, very pale edged. The nose is very elegant and refined with very good depth and intensity of pure lime fruit entwined with white florals a a subtle layering of thirst-quenching savoury minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut and tightly concentrated with flavours of lime fruit, white florals and savoury minerals. The mouthfeel is thirst-quenchingly dry with crisp, racy acidity, and the wine has fine fruit extract providing a refined line. Flavours of apples emerge and carry with the limes and minerals to a long, elegantly proportioned finish. This is a refined, taut, mouthwatering dry Riesling with lime, floral, apple and savoury mineral flavours and fine fruit extraction. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the TWR ‘Home Block’, vines planted in 1979, hand-picked and hand-sorted, a portion WBP, and fermented in stainless-steel to 12.4% alc., 3.3 g/L RS, TA 6.8 g/L and pH 3.01. Certified BioGro organic. 781 cases made. 18.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $28.00
