Two Rivers ‘Juliet’ Marlborough Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Nov-2014
Brilliant pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a refined and pure nose of acacia and jasmine florals entwined with lime fruit, the aromatics showing intensity and detail, revealing mouth-watering minerally nuances in the glass. Medium-dry to taste, pure white florals and lime fruits form a very soft-textured and delicate core. The mouthfeel is poised with ripe, piquant, thirst-quenching acidity and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line. The wine balances fruit lift with subtle sweetness and soft acidity beautifully, and the palate carries through to a long, sustained, aromatic finish. This is an extremely elegant, pure and poised medium-dry Riesling with refined floral flavours. Serve as an aperitif and with delicate seafood dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from 18 y.o. vines in a single site in the Upper Wairau Valley, hand-picked, WBP and cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 13.9 g/L RS with TA 7.8 g/L and pH 3.0. 18.5+/20 Nov 2014 RRP $25.00
