The Boneline ‘Hellblock’ Waipara Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Nov-2014
Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. This has a very fresh and tightly bound nose with pure lime, white floral and savoury mineral aromas, unfolding suggestions of honeysuckle interest with aeration. Medium-dry to taste, the fruit flavours of citrus fruits and flowers are tight and restrained in expression. The wine is taut and near austere in mouthfeel, but this has soft textures and very fine phenolics. Thirst-quenching sweet and sour minerally elements combine with racy acidity, lending vitality and poise, and carry the wine to a refined, dry, sustained finish. This is a tight and racy medium-dry Riesling with citrus and savoury minerally flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with fine Asian fare over the next 5-6 years. Fruit grown on a gravel river terrace, WBP and fermented to 10.0% alc. and 37 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Nov 2014 RRP $21.50
