Terrace Edge Waipara Valley ‘Classic’ Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Mar-2014
Hand-picked fruit, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 12.5 g/L RS with a TA 8.89 g/L and pH 3.27. Bright, light straw-yellow colour, very pale on edge. This has an elegantly proportioned, fine-featured and intense nose of limes and lemon, revealing complex layers of honey with secondary toasty elements in a smooth and integrated, harmonious array. Delicate mouthwatering mineral nuances add detail and thirst-quenching interest. Off-dry to taste and light-bodied, soft and delicate flavours of citrus fruits, white and yellow florals and honied toast are all harmoniously interwoven on the palate. This is smooth flowing with gentle acidity in the background enabling the palate and mouthfeel to grow in unctuousness. The wine builds in presence and the flavours lead to a dry, gently honied and toasty finish. This is a very smooth and harmonious, off-dry Riesling developing complex honey and toasty notes. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 4+ years. 18.5/20 Mar 2014 RRP $23.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
