Three Miners Earnscleugh Central Otago Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 04-Jul-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is softly fresh with a taut, refined core of lime and lemon fruit along with subtle notes of white florals and mouthwatering minerals, unfolding suggestions of honeysuckle and musk. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, the palate has soft citrus fruit flavours melded with white florals, subtle honeysuckle and mineral notes and a hint of savoury musk forming a softly concentrated heart. The mouthfeel is smooth in flow with fresh, lacy acidity and the wine carries along a fine line, leading to a lingering finish of citrus fruit, honey and minerals. This is a medium, light-bodied Riesling with flavours of lime and lemon with nuances of honey, florals minerals and musk on a softly fresh, smooth palate. Serve with Asian fare over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Three Miners’ vineyard, WBP and cool-fermented in tank to 10.5% alc. and 22.4 g/L RS, TA 8.65 g/L and pH 2.88. 18.0-/20 Jul 2018 RRP $23.00
