Terrace Edge Classic Riesling 2020, Waipara

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Jan-2021
Bright, pale yellow-gold, even colour throughout. The nose is delicate and soft, nuances of floral, lime and apricot are vibrant, along with a light honey note and crunchy minerals. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, savoury aromas of apricot and lime is moreish, interwoven with citrus peels and white spices, mouthwatering mineral lingers to a refreshing finish. The fruit has good concentration and purity. The fruit's savouriness balanced out the taut acid, with good tension and focus; positive citrus peel bitterness and white spices added interest, lends a long finish to savour. This is an intensely lime-apricot flavoured Riesling with balanced taut acid and sugar with lingering savouriness. Match with scallops and black pudding over the next 6+ years. Clean fruit, no botrytis, stainless steel fermented to 12.5% alc, 12.5 g/l RS. BioGro organic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $24
