Two Rivers Juliet Riesling 2020, Marlborough

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jul-2020
Bright, pale yellow-lime, even throughout. The nose is elegant and youthful with aromas of lemon, lime sherbet, apricot, melded with orange blossoms and pollen, along with lightly honeyed cereal and delicate spices. Medium-light bodied, off-dry to taste, thirst-quenching lime sherbet and young apricot are lightly sweetened by honey, entwined with citrus peels, orange blossoms and subtle spices. The acidity is mouthwatering and vibrant, balanced by the 27.5 g/l sugar sweetness, left the finish refreshingly dry without being cloying. Good tension of the acid carries citrus peels through the palate and left a light grip. The purity of fruit and thirst-quenching acidity are the main features of this refreshing Riesling. Match with shellfish and salty pork cracklings over the next 3-5 years. Fermented in stainless steel to 11% alc, 27.5 g/l RS. Rested on its lees for 3 months. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $24
