Te Whare Ra ‘Single Vineyard 5182’ Marlborough Riesling ‘M’ 2015

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Nov-2015
Brilliant, even, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is softly full and gently voluminous with aromas of ripe citrus fruits, showing tangerines and mandarins along with citrus blossom, entwined with lemon and limes. Jasmine florals, honeysuckle and mineral detail emerge in the glass. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, lusciously juicy and well-concentrated fruit flavours of limes, tangerines, citrus blossom and jasmine form a rich core, unveiling subtle notes of honeysuckle and minerals. The wine follows a very fine, textured thread, and the mouthfeel is balanced by crisp, refreshing and mouthwatering acidity. The wine flows with positive energy, carrying to a soft, long-lingering finish of honey and florals. This is a very elegant, rich and luscious medium Riesling with mouthwatering acid balance and exotic citrus fruit. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. Hand-picked and sorted fruit from the ‘TWR Home Block’, given some skin contact and cool-fermented in tank to 9.5% alc. and 25 g/L RS, ta 9.0 g/L and pH 2.9. Certified BioGro organic. 390 cases made. 19.0-/20 Nov 2015 RRP $28.00
