Three Miners Herringbone Riesling 2021, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Oct-2021
Bright, even, very pale yellow with a slightly green hue. The bouquet is soft and elegant, packed with citrus nuances, lime flower, ripe stone fruit interweave and a subtle lifting of white spice. Medium-light bodied, dry-ish to taste, brilliantly concentrated aromas of lime, its zest and flower, melded with Granny Smith apple and its skins, white peach rounded the finish with a hint of white pepper. The fruit is pure with excellent concentration, a succulent lime core enlivened by lush flavours of Granny Smith and ripe peach. Lime zest, floral element added interest, and apple skins contribute to the texture. Good energy flow and a taut acid tension drive a long, refreshing finish. This vibrant, crisp Riesling with lime and apple core concentration persist on a salivating textural palate along with floral and white spice details. Match with white fish ceviche and clams in seaweed butter over the next 5+ years. Fruit was sourced from Three Miners Vineyard, near Alexandra, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented to 11% alc. 18.5+/20 (94 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $29
